Also asked, how do you eat a cheese course?
The cheese course is typically consumed after the main course and before or after a dessert. Your host may serve a small dessert followed by a cheese course with perhaps a dessert wine, like a sweet Sauternes. You may see a simple platter, board or slate with a few cheese knives beside three or four cheeses.
Secondly, why is cheese served at the end of a meal? From my understanding, cheese is served at the end of a meal to help aid in digestion. I think it's served before the dessert in France, and after the dessert in England. I generally don't eat desserts so I end my meal with the cheese course and port - or some other kind of dessert wine.

What is the cheese course called in French?
Cheese: The French reputably eat more cheese than anyone else in the world. After the salad, and before (may also replace) the dessert they appreciate a selection of it served on a wooden board and only if you are a foreigner would you be offered bread. The French like cheese au natur, or as it comes.
