Product details

A classic from the Loire, a region knee-deep in great goats' milk cheeses dating back to the Saracen invasion of France in the 8th century. It is so delicate when young that it is held together by a thin straw. (In order to control production of the cheese, the dairies now have to have their farm's name or code laser engraved on the straw. (Pull it out and look!) The fresh cheese is ashed, and then ripened to produce a log that is both creamy and full-flavoured. The Fine Cheese Co.'s Sainte Maure is selected from one of the small farmhouse producers and aged to perfection by the affineur Hardy.
