Livradois Cantalet AOC Entre Deux Cheese

One of France's most ancient cheeses, comparable to cheddar, but more nuanced and complex. The Entre Deux version is aged 3-7 months. 

Fans of cheddar and French cheese will love this one. One of France’s most ancient and intriguing cheeses, Cantal is often compared to cave-aged cheddar. It comes from a rugged part of France called ‘the land of a thousand volcanoes,’ covered in green grass and ancient stone huts. The AOC status means this cheese’s production is regulated to guarantee authenticity: one bite is an invitation to taste thousands of years of history. The “Entre Deux’ version is aged for 3-7 months and has a flavor somewhere between the mild and aged versions. The cheese has a rustic rind and intricate flavors of fruit, cultured cream, hazelnuts, and earthen cellars. Cantal is classic in many French dishes like aligot and gratin, but doesn’t need all that preparation. Serve at room temperature with simple accompaniments to fully taste its complexities.
