Fromage fort is a French cheese spread, literally "strong cheese". It is traditionally made by blending together pieces of different leftover cheeses, white wine (or other spirits), garlic, and various herbs.[1][2] Other ingredients include pepper and leek broth. Aging is optional.

Blue cheese, while one of the possible components, is usually included in small quantities, as its flavor is often stronger than other traditional ingredients.[3][4]
