    A salad, nice crusty French baguette and a Rhine wine like Liebfraumilch

    I agree with Ron but would personally go for red wine which will bring out the 'blue' more..... something not too heavy ; a 'light' red & fruity grape like cote du Rhône or a Bourgogne (burgundy ) made from pinot noir grape, which is slightly heavier...

    I move all over mostly the atlantic coast with the company I work for; at the moment we are south of lorient at st.brevins-les-pins just under St Nazaire...Have lived in Pont Aven for 5 yrs too just 20 mins from Lorient. Talking about blue... if you ever have a chance try mixing equal parts of butter & blue cheese (esp.roquefort) add a drop of cognac, smash with a fork to make a paste and spread on bread!!!it's wicked you don't taste the cognac but it really brings out the taste of the blue!
