Time Out (2012) “Justly famous for her beaufort and st-marcellin, she also sells specialities such as goat’s cheese with pesto. Unlike many French fromagers, Marie respects the cheese of other countries and even has a whole shelf devoted to foreign cheeses.”
David Lebovitz (2010) “There’s plenty of fromagers in Paris, but a few, like Marie Quatrehomme, are truly le top du top. Some of the fancy fromageries can be slightly snooty if you’re not a regular (I won’t mention any names…), but at Quatrehomme, they’re always as nice as can be…”
Rosa Jackson (2007) “So what makes her cheese so good? Well, first of all, she knows her producers personally, which means that she understands what they are trying to accomplish. This allows her to finish the ageing process in her own cellars with a real respect for the cheese.”
