Cheese - Valencay 8 oz

This beautiful charcoal coated cheese has a white fleurie streaking across its' bloomy rind. It's current shape is thanks to Napoleon who, after having lost a military battle in Egypt, stopped at a castle in the Loire valley. As a tribute the dinner featured beautiful, pyramid shaped cheeses as a tribute to his victory in Egypt. Sadly Napoleon had actually been beaten there. In a fit of rage he cut the tops of the cheeses off with his sword, giving them their current shape.

Ingredients & Storage Tips

Ingredient(s):Pasteurized goat milk, salt, rennet, starter, carbon ash
Storage Tips: Refrigerate any cheeses and meats in a drawer close to where most of the produce is kept. After each time that you slice the cheese, re-wrap it with fresh plastic wrap to extend the shelf life. While some chefs will freeze a slice of blue and then grate it over a salad before serving, Chef's Mandala doesn't recommend freezing cheeses in general.

Flavors & Uses

For a cheese plate serve with a Mahon and Moliterno al Tartufo. Or pair with a Camembert and Roquefort or Ossau Iraty. Sides that work include a glass of Sancerre or Sauvignon Blanc, grapes, crackers, Alps salami and some dill pickles.
