This Week’s Cheese

Our cheese this week is Chantal Juene. For anyone who has watched Rick Stein Secret France series you will remember the episode when he arrives in the Auvergne, famous for hearty dishes celebrating the finest Salers beef and Cantal cheese. Salers cattle produce the milk for Cantal cheese, the rich milk from these mahogany coloured cows produces this very special cheese. Cantal Jeune (meaning young in French), aged from 30 to 60 days, is the youngest type, with a smooth, softer texture and fresh, milky flavour similar to Comte. We handcut this cheese and sizes do vary £17 per kg (we have portions between £2.50 and £4.50) let us know approx which size you would like.
