Lovely rich and velvety

Delivery/Collection info

    Etorki means "origin" and is made in the French Basque Country from sheep's milk.  It is similar to Ossau Iraty and has a lovely and unusual gentle flavour. Very useful as a substitute for Cheddar or Gouda in cooking if cow's milk is a problem. Made with pasteurised sheep's milk, it takes 6 gallons to make one cheese (as it takes 22 ewes to provide the same amount of milk as from the milking of 1 cow - that's a lot of ewes!) hence the consistently higher price of ewes milk cheeses  It has a wonderful velvet texture with a rich hazelnut/caramel flavour, I find it a tricky one to describe, but it really is lovely.  I always struggle whether i should put this cheese into the semi soft category as it's certainly on that side of hard cheeses.

    Following a 4000 year tradition, Etorki is pressed and matured for three to six months.  From the milk of black or red faced Manech ewes in Mauleon,
