A typical wooden camembert box that will help light a fire this fall.
This is a recent cheese box that is only noteworthy because the name of the cheese, Gerbe d'Or, is the name of a restaurant where we recently had lunch. The restaurant is in Loches, nowhere near Normandy where the cheese comes from. By the way, une gerbe is a bundle of grain, like wheat, arranged with their long stems all pointing the same way, often tied in the center. So, une gerbe d'or is a golden bundle of grain, an icon of a bountiful harvest. By extension, it's also the term for a spray of flowers as you'd see at a wedding, a funeral, or other official ceremonies. The word gerbe can also refer to a spray of artillery fire, and in it's verb form, gerber, it's a slang term for losing your lunch (which itself is a euphemism for, well, you know).
