Strong enough to invite the two men to her pasture, soft enough to let go of her inhabitations when they accept.
She is not like most women, Selles sur Cher lives alone in the Valley while her barking goats keep her company during the long hot summer months. Her dreaming mind manifests a real-life fantasy that leads to adventures she never believed possible, from a one-day chance-encounter to a yearlong travel across the continent it is her time to explore her raw center.
The Cheese Selles sur Cher literally comes from the river. It is as famous as any raw goat milk cheese, or soft chevre, with a distinctive dusting of vegetable ash that both protects and enhances the cheese.
It is from the Loire Valley in France and is best consumed young and fresh.
