Fromagerie Mont Royal Tradition
Bleu de Berger

$37.99/EA
600 feet above sea level, at the base of “Napoleon’s Nose” in Basque country, you’ll find Fromagerie Mont Royal Tradition where this firm raw sheep’s milk tomme is made. The recipe started off as an attempt to replicate Roquefort, but resulted in a much milder paste with smooth, fruity notes, not without some distinct sheepiness. Its closest relative is Ossau Iraty Vielle, another of the region’s traditional natural rind, sheep tommes. The cheese’s fruity aspects are fittingly paired with Black Cherry Confit and some of the region’s fruitier rosés.
