Look: Depending on the versions, most likely ivory and soft brown tones and a speckled cloth rind and a rough textured rind under the cloth
Touch: The paste has natural cheddar-smoothness
Smell: Ocean spray, slight barn, grass, lactic, vegetal
Taste: Slightly buttery flavours are mingled with fruity essences and caramel undertones. A true clothbound cheddar can be sharp or mild but is always strong in natural cheese spirit
Food:Sliced red apples and pears are the perfect carrier for this simple but magnificent cheese but for the more adventurous a sweet balsamic glaze drizzled over a mouthful will bring out the caramel.
Beverage: Dark beers and your favorite ales including a cherry lager if the intent is to sip.
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.
