The Pitchounet is made in Aveyron, in the heart of the Regional Natural Park of Grands Causses in the Midi Pyrenees of south west France by cheese-makers using ancestral methods that guarantee the reknowned character of the cheese.
Pitchounet is made from Lacaune sheep's milk, the same breed as for Roquefort cheese . This tomme is slightly convex and weighs approx 380 -410 grams and is refined 4 to 5 weeks.
The interior is soft with a delicate flavour and the rind is formed naturally during the ageing process.
The crust is soft and fine to eat, if you choose - so no waste.
A wonderful cheese!
