The enticingly namedFrench Cheese Board is a new cheese concept store in lower Manhattan, New York, which along with selling an array of imported French cheeses and cheese-eating accessories, will act as a learning, gallery and events space to promote and educate visitors about the numerous delights and history of French cheese. It even has a small library dedicated to cheese–related literature.
Dreamt-up by the ambassadorial organisation of the same name, and realised by French graphic designers Ich&Kar, the store's walls are adorned with interactive, customisable displays and murals like the map below, while cheese masters will be on hand to offer expert pairing advice and hold cooking demos.
