Strong points: Best cheese tray in Japan! Great wines

it has been some time since I paid my last visit to Gentil Restaurant in Shizuoka City.
Gentil is renown all over Japan for the best cheese trays (within reasonability in a restaurant! Naturally one could always offer a mountain of cheese at ridiculous prices!) served at a restaurant.

here is what we we were served last night:

Marchalet, France, Cow’s milk. And beautiful mini-carrots!

Top: Banc de maquis, France, Ewe’s milk.

Bottom is Le Vigneron, Alsace, france, Cow’s milk, matured with Gewurtstraminer white wine.

From top clockwise:
Sakura, Hokkaido, Cow’s milk (raw).
Tarantais, France, Goat’s milk.
Tomato jelly and basilco on Mozzarella, Italy, Buffalo’s milk

Centre: Fourme D’Ambert, France, Cow’s milk.

Do I need to say it was great? LOL
