Ovalie cendree cheese - 150g - (pasteurised goat milk) - light pleasant acidity, nice goaty flavor. As it ages, it develops a creamier paste and nuttier flavors
The luscious Ovalie Cendrée, a bloomy-rind goat cheese from France, is yet another little masterpiece from affineur Hervé Mons. Cendrée means ashed, a reference to the slate-gray powder - it's food-grade charcoal - that is sprinkled over the young cheese. The ash raises the surface pH, which encourages the white mold to grow.
