  • DESCRIPTION
    Etorki cheese is a lovely French Ewe's milk cheese and is made in the French Basque Country. Etorki is similar to Ossau Iraty and has a lovely and unusual gentle flavour from the sheeps milk. 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,

    My husbands favourite cheese…EVER!!!

    We found this cheese while in France 30+ years ago and my husband has never stopped raving about it! He was diagnosed as “ cow” intolerant last year and I started to search for goat & ewes cheese. Found the Etorki on Mousetrap and now use it regularly instead of cheddar. Try it intolerant or not it’s well worth it.
