Mushroom Cheese Sauce (Fondue de Champignons au Chaource)

This is a traditional sauce, spread and filling found in the Champagne Region of France. Chaource is a cow's milk cheese from the region, and is similar in texture to Camembert, though it is more similar in flavor to Brie. You can serve the sauce in a variety of settings, including in pastries, pies or on toast.

Palaces of Paris and Île-de-France

This map outlines the major palaces of the Île-de-France region that are open to the public. I have sorted them roughly by the primary architectural style they represent. While some palaces, such as Versailles and Fontainebleau, are already UNESCO Heritage sites, most of the palaces on this list are worth visiting in their own right.
