Sainte Maure de touraine 04

Sainte Maure

This goat’s cheese is based on the traditional French cheese Sainte-Maure-de-Touraine which is solely produced around the Loire River area of France.

Sainte Maure is formed into a small log no more than 17cm long. Traditionally, a piece of straw is placed in the middle of the cheese roll to keep it intact while a white mould is used to produce a bluish-grey edible rind.

The cheese has a smooth and soft texture with a buttery and slightly acidic flavour.
