I love the combination of ewe’s milk cheese and wild Corsican herbs from the ‘maquis’. This cheese has a real ‘gout du terroir’. Unique!
We hope to get some more really soon!
Tried this for the first time recently and loved it, happy to see its back in stock! Hard to explain its texture somewhere between a soft and hard cheese kind of chewy and flavour from herb crust is delicious
So glad you tried Fleur du Maquis - we love it when our customers discover new cheeses. This semi-hard, ewes milk cheese rewards those who don't judge a book by its cover - or should that be don't judge a cheese by its rind. We truly appreciate you taking the time to write a review, Janis!
This is probably not what I'd have initially picked - but I'm so pleased that I did. It wasn't like anything that I'd tried before. It was complex, but also very enjoyable to eat. This would be a top pick if you are looking to have a cheeseboard a bit more interesting than soft/hard/blue - or even just a cheese on its own.
We love reading reviews like this, Tiffany. It's our true pleasure to introduce new and delicious cheese to people. The Fleur du Maquis may not always visually appeal on first glance with its dry herb-coated rind, but it certainly rewards those adventurous cheese-eaters. We anoint you Tiffany the turophile (cheese lover)!
