Crottin de Chavignol


Crottin is a small cylindrical shaped cheese that weighs about 90g. The name Crottin comes from the small holes that were on the sides of the river Loire, where women would come and wash clothes. These holes were created by the excavation of clay in order to make moulds for the cheese, as well as other ceramics items.

When a Crottin is fresh it is bright white, and as it matures it develops some blue and white mold. Over time the cheese loses moisture and becomes more slatey in texture. The flavour intensifies and nutty characteristics develop, on the palate it becomes more chalky and pasty.

If you are looking for a goats cheese to cook with, this is a winner. It can be grated or sliced.

Ingredients: Milk (goat's), salt, traditional rennet. Unpasteurised

Allergens: Milk
