I’m a little behind on blog post plans due to my 21st birthday (belated, celebratory post coming soon), attempts at studying and working towards my TEFL (also to be discussed soon), and general laziness in all honesty. So let’s throw it back to the beginning of the month . . .

After a lovely and much needed break at home, mum flew back with me to Paris. I had been desperate to visit Versailles, so used this as the perfect opportunity to drag somebody along with me (she was more than compliant really). However, Versailles is more of a full-day / Saturday outing so on the afternoon and evening of our arrival we had a wander, and some food and wine . . . naturally. When in Rome and whatnot.

Having wanted to lunch at ‘Madame Fromage’ since starting university in Cardiff back in September, I finally got round to going last week and I have to say it did not disappoint. Located in one of the pretty Cardiff arcades, it makes for the perfect lunching spot.

Upon arrival, we were told that there would be up to a half hour wait for food which we didn’t mind and proceeded to take a table for two (the food only actually took 15-20 minutes to arrive). We were super hungry as we had been saving ourselves for a big late lunch, so we ordered the large cheeseboard and a Welsh Rarebit to share, as seen below.




The large cheeseboard shown above consisted of more than 10 cheeses to sample, walnuts, gherkins, apple slices, some pickle, a large mixed salad and was served with a selection of bread, and butter (the board was much bigger than it looks in these photos and we had to do some rearranging to fit it onto the table). It also comes in a mini version, more suitable for one. The selection of cheeses was delightful and I have to say there wasn’t one that did not please. As for the Welsh Rarebit, this was just as delicious and we could have definitely managed another slice, I’m sure.

We were so impressed by all of the yummy cheesy goodies on offer, that we are already planning the next lunch at ‘Madame Fromage’.

Unfortunately, all of the photos for this post were taken on my iPhone 5 rather than my DSLR so I must apologise for the photo quality this time and promise to take my camera with me more often!
