Small family creation, the Écrou du Fromager is a small farmhouse goat cheese. As its French name indicates, it has the unique shape of a hexagonal nut, with a hexagonal hole in the centre as well. It is made from whole goat milk from the GAEC des Alpines farm collective. Its texture is on the firm and dense side. The ash-coated version has a fine, silvery rind and the very slightly acidic and salty taste that’s typical of goat cheese. The cheese may become covered with mould depending on its maturity. Maturation for 10 to 15 days. This cheese makes a great gift for friends who love working with tools!
