Sakura 1/2

Sakura is a farmer's cheese made from raw ewe's milk, soft and with a natural rind.

It is a brick-shaped cheese with a Japanese cherry blossom leaf in the centre.

Its rind is quite white when young and becomes cream-coloured with sometimes bluish spots as it matures.

Its paste, which coats the leaf when cut, is white, fine and silky.

The cherry leaf, which is edible, gives the Sakura a fruity aroma with morello cherry and almond flavours while retaining the characteristic aromas of sheep's milk.
