Truffe de Valensole

Truffe de Valensole, goat milk cheese available to sell

In the Alpes of the Haute Provence around the village of Valensole one finds excellent truffles. Truffles are world renowned as a famous gastronomic delicacy of the highly scented under-ground forest mushroom. The Truffe de Valensole is shaped by hand to resemble these highly prized truffles. Then the rind is covered with a fine coat of black charcoal to insure its exterior aspect looks like a truffle. The taste of the Truffe de Valensole is fresh, with a delicate milky overtone. This sensation of freshness leaves a seductive after taste of herbal undergrowth. The pate is snowy white and in the early part of the cheeses maturing process tends to be slightly crumbly; it melts in the mouth.
