Petit Livarot Cheese 250g

Named after a village in Normandy, Livarot is one of Frances oldest Cheeses. During production, Livarot is circled by five straps of rush leaves or paper that prevent the cheese from collapsing during maturing. The straps of Livarot are reminiscent of a uniform's stripes, giving the cheese its nickname "The Colonel".

More about Liverot ... which is one of the great Normandy cheeses; It is thought to have monastic origins, having a typical washed rind and pungent aroma, with its making being taught by the monks to the local farmers many years ago. It is similar to other cheeses of Normandy such as Pont l'Evêque and Pavé d'Auge and used to be known as the 'meat of the poor'.

Each cheese is made with a mixture of skimmed evening and whole morning milk (unpasteurised cows' milk) giving a fat content of 40-45% (as opposed to 48% for whole fat milk). The curds and whey are scooped into round moulds and the whey is allowed to drain off. The cheeses are then turned and washed with brine which has been coloured with annatto. Maturing takes place in warm, humid cellars for up to two months. Livarot has a full and assertive flavour, a supple texture and a pungent aroma. The rind is brown-orange due to the annatto washings. 

Livarots are made in three different sizes as specified in its 1975 AOC. Trois-quarts (three quarter size) at 10.6cm diameter; Petit-Livarot (small) at 9cm diameter and the Quart-Livarot at 7cm diameter. Almost all of the Livarot produced today is made in large creameries using pasteurised milk and yield blander cheeses.

Livarot is excellent on the cheese board although it is best tasted after milder cheeses. It is best enjoyed with a full-bodied red wine, a glass of Normandy cider or Calvados.

Serve as an appetizer with crusty bread, or serve as a dessert cheese and enjoy with fruits such as apples, grapes or pears. Pairs well with a Cheese and Wine Shop Pommerol.
