3 TYPES OF FRENCH CHEESE
Extra Old Mimolette, Vieille Losfeld, 30g
Extra mature Mimolette is an uncooked, pressed cow’s milk cheese from the North of France. Found in sphere of about 20cm in diameter, this cheese presents a gray rind and orangey curd and is aged for 24 months. Its buttery, salty and nutty taste is ideal when added to salads, omelets and other cooked dishes.
Cantal Entre Deux, AOP, 30g
Cantal AOC is one of the oldest cheeses in France dating to the times of the Gaul’s rule. Cantal is an uncooked pressed paste made from cow’s milk in the form of an oven. For each ovenme of about 40 kilos, 400 litres of milk are needed. Since 1956 it has had an Appellation d’Origine Protégée (AOP) which guarantees its traditional method of production and its constant quality.
Bleu d’Auvergne, Auvergne, 30g
Bleu d’Auvergne is creamy ivory colour, dotted with blue-green mould due to the Penicillium roqueforti which gives the cheese its typical bluish-green veins. It is aged for minimum 4 weeks, by which time the cheese showcases its assertive flavours and smooth texture. The strong aroma and full flavoured characteristics of the cheese are at its optimum when served with sweet dessert wines or Armagnacs.
