List of Belgian cheeses Version française

Belgium has a long tradition of cheese-making going back to the Middle Ages. A lot of cheeses are still named after the abbeys where they are/were manufactured. Many abbeys (e.g. Chimay, Maresdous, Passchendaele, Westmalle) make both beer and cheese. 54 varieties of Belgian cheeses are listed on this page.
