the essential
In Saint-Jory, north of Toulouse, cheesemaker Lauriane Lopez “Chez fromagement bon” has just entered the regional Gault et Millau 2024-2025. Meeting a true enthusiast.

Lauriane Lopez opened a cheese shop at the Clos de l’Hers shopping center, in Saint-Jory (31), in October 2022. She constantly repeats: “Cheese is my passion! I have a lot of variety because I follow the seasons, which is very important in this job. I don’t sell cheese; I like to bring it to life. It’s a product to work on but they are totally different productions. They require refinements specific to each person. Cheese has a story that I like to tell to my customers.”

150 cheeses

Its 150 cheeses are selected “with high standards from the best producers”. From cheese cut to complete cheese composed like a work of art, this enthusiast likes to give meaning, colors and originality to each platter. With her, a great journey through the cheeses of France and the world takes place.

And recently, Lauriane was rewarded for her work. She was contacted by the management of Gault et Millau to tell her that her cheese factory had been selected to be included in the famous 2024-2025 regional guide. “I am very happy but extremely surprised because I have only been here for a year and a half,” she says. These are the main principles of Gault et Millau which led the gastronomic guide to select this cheese factory: total independence from establishments, the recruitment of demanding investigators, gourmets and gourmands. But also the anonymity of the investigators during the evaluations, the visit under normal conditions of attendance… all that was missing was to add to these criteria, the passion and the love of a job well done which Lauriane Lopez distills without moderation!
