Almost any cheese will do for fromage fort, whether they be hard rind cheeses or soft double creams. Use blue cheeses sparingly if mixed in with this recipe as it may overpower the flavor. However, to make an even stronger fromage fort (or, strong cheese) make blue the hero cheese and substitute port wine or sherry for the white wine.
