Q: Where to buy European Cheese

Where can one buy european cheese. Like a Roblechon, Cousteron or a creamy Camenbert? I've been looking everywhere but couldn't find one in Beijing.

Are there any specialty store somewhere? Sometimes i miss a good fondue.

If price isn't an issue, is it possible to find?

The cheese selection in Beijing is limited. It's really difficult finding artisan farmhouse cheese here. Most of what you get is imported factory cheese like cheddar and gouda. But your best bet is checking out the cheese counters at April Gourmet or Jenny Lou's. Though they only have a small selection, they do have whole bries and other cheeses like comte. I also saw that April Gourmet sells prep-packed gruyere cheese which is perfect for fondue.

There's also a local guy who makes French cheese called Le Fromager de Pekin. He does Camembert.

I stumbled uponed this article on echina with more cheese info:

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
