This unusual semi hard Tomme from the Pyrenees is made from hand ladled curd at the small Fromagerie Jean Faup. Made exclusively from goat’s milk collected in the Ariege and La Haute-Garonne region, the cheese is washed for 8 days in a brine solution before being matured in damp cellars for a minimum of three months.

The rind encourages the paste within to develop a very distinctive goaty-tangy and earthy flavour, makes the mild industrial Pyrenees cheeses look tame by comparison. The texture is creamy somewhat like moist fudge and has little holes throughout.
