Belgian food reveals a variety of influences from other countries. Their cheeses are most directly influenced by the French, due to the fact that many are made by the Trappist Monks who fled France to Belgium in the mid-nineteenth century. The proximity of the two countries also plays a significant role in the influence. The cheeses on this board are fine examples of the Trappist's cheese making ability.
