Build the perfect French cheese board full of rich, traditional flavors with the help of this Etorki Reserve sheep cheese! Etorki Reserve's thin, butterscotch-colored rind gives way to a supple, smooth, and creamy texture in its interior, thanks to its high butterfat content. The cheese has a sweet and slightly nutty, mild taste that features notes of caramel, as well as a sweet, earthy aroma. Its mild taste and velvety texture makes it a pleasing cheese for both the casual enjoyer and connoisseur alike!
This sheep's milk cheese lends itself well to both melting and grating, making it a great addition to your gourmet sandwiches and salads, and can even be used as a substitute gouda or cheddar in recipes. When adding to a cheese board, try Etorki Reserve with a dark stone fruit jam and cured ham. When pairing this cheese with wine, opt for Chardonnays, young red wines, and sparkling white wines.
The French Basque region of the Pyrenees is renowned for its alpine sheep cheeses and cheese-making traditions, and this Etorki Reserve sheep cheese is no exception! Produced in the French town of Mauleon-Licharre by artisan cheesemakers, Etorki Reserve is made from the high quality, pasteurized milk of native, local Manech ewes that graze the lush green mountains of the Western Pyrenees. Each 10 lb. wheel uses 6 gallons of the ewes milk, and is pulp-pressed and uncooked. Once molded, the wheel is then bathed in brine, dried and salted, and then left to mature for a period of a least three months. This style of cheese-making in the French Basque country has remained unchanged for the last 4000 years, and Etorki draws its name from the Basque word for "origin". Take your patrons on a journey through the flavors and rich history of France with a slice of this Etorki Reserve cheese!
