French people are so arrogant that probably do not even realise other nations have cheeses which are better then them? like they legit think they are the best cuisine in the world when 2 of its neighbours (Italy and Spain) have far better cuisines

So famous, various and tasty, that's just amazing, unreal and surprising.

Just a delight in mouth...

We didn't expect that. Now we know we found a cheese refiner here in Stockholm and we buy major part French cheeses, of course there is just a small part compared of the hundreds of different ones you will find in France.

In France you have more than 400 official cheeses in France and in Switzerland more than 450.
Those 2 Countries produce also the most different varieties and the most tasty cheeses, far before Italy.

More than 1,200 cheeses and more than 450 labeled, but Germany and Netherlands (with less than 10 cheeses) are the first exporters. Lots of countries refuse the "fresh cheeses" to be imported.

Sheer range of cheeses, complexity of flavours and textures, beats any other country hands down. Very high animal welfare and food hygiene standards. Some of the most consistent rainfall in the world alongside a temperate climate, making great grass for the dairy cows.

Most varieties available, best flavours ranging from strong to mild, creamy to crumbly, difference sources available, and many still traditionally made at creameries. Most other countries make cheese that tastes like chewy, slightly gone off milk. For real flavour, England will surprise you.

English cheeses are the best cheeses French and dutch cheeses to me are no match for English cheeses as far as swiss cheese that shouldn't be in the top five this list is very poor

The tastiest fresh and aged cheese. A variety of truly different flavors, from the most subtle to sharp and flavorful. Amazing!

Italy No 2? Must be Switzerland. In Swiss we produce lots of famous cheeses. Not like this windy parmigiano regiano and this horrible mozarella.

Cheeses without taste and really few varieties compare to US, swiss ones etc...
