Perseille de Malzieu
Tomme de L’ariage
Brie de Melun
Perseille de Malzieu: There is Blue cheese and Blue cheese and this is definitely the latter. A really unusual raw ewe’s milk cheese from the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France. Sharp and spicy and not unlike a Roquefort.
Valancay: The tale for this cheese goes that Napoleon, after his defeat in Egypt, was averse to any pyramids. The local gentry forbade their families to make a pyramid, so the farmers decapitated their cheese. Another less patriotic tale says that a farmer’s wife, with too much cheese and not enough cheese molds had to use her cake forms to finish making the cheeses. The delicate, uniformly ashed rind covers a white, fine textured paste with a mildly goaty and nutty flavor.
Tomme de L’ariage: This Tomme is the result of a very imaginative cheese maker who fearlessly blended several traditions. The shape hails from the Pyrenees, but the consistency of the paste and the cheese maturing methods are distinctly Alpine; very similar to Reblochon. The rose colored rind has a light downy mould that encases a very white and supple paste and a delicate, nutty flavor with goaty notes as it ages.
Jura Swiss: A firm, unpasteurised cow's milk cheese with a strong taste that hints of hay and nuts. An Artisanal cheese that has a thick, dark rind but a smooth yellow paste. This cheese is produced in the Swiss Jura region of France, and the cows graze on lush green grass at more than 1,000 meters of altitude. This cheese beautifully represents what a Gruyere should be.
Brie de Melun: A soft unpasteurised cow's milk cheese, with a salty and herby flavor that’s stronger than Brie de Meaux. This Brie is only made by a few cheesemakers and its flavor makes it easily identifiable. An Artisanal cheese produced in the Ile de France region of North Central France.
