We love cheese

Pérail de Brebis (aged)

We found this for sale in a visiting French market. It was rather crusty and gnarly, so we had to try it.

Normally, Pérail de Bribis is a soft white delicate cheese, but this one was aged, turning into a hard, leathery disc.

The formerly white rind has turned mottled brown and beige. It smells rather like a farm outhouse.

Cutting into it reveals that it has become almost all rind, with a thin layer of soft khaki, grey pate. What little pate remains has a soft, silky texture similar to that of lemon curd..

The flavour is strong and bitter, with a burning spiciness. Not for the feint of heart cheese novice.

It is interesting and pleasant in a masochistic way. Best eaten on toasted fruit bread to counteract some of the bitterness.

Despite the seemingly negative write up, we actually rather liked it.
