The L'Artisan Cheese Pack!
"Aussie cheese with a French heart"
THIS IS A PRE-ORDER FOR SENDING FROM MID JULY 2020
Our Australian cheesemakers truly are outdoing themselves, with the quality of their cheeses competing with age-old traditional cheesemakers in Europe and the rest of the world. L'Artisan is one Australian cheesemaker you can't help but want to hold onto as our own. With a vast French cheesemaking background, we couldn't be prouder to bring you this cheese pack from our friends at L'Artisan.
Who is L'Artisan?
Matthieu Megard has continually proven to be one of the country’s best cheese makers. Hailing from France, this third generation cheesemaker captures the essence of his surrounds of the Great Ocean Road and combines that with his knowledge of French cheese making. It’s no wonder why we have continually featured his produce.
What are the cheeses?
This pack includes four French inspired cheeses from third generation cheese- maker, Matthieu Megar, who has continually proven to be one of the country’s best!
Fried cheese can be compared to that exact moment hot water hits your skin during your morning winter shower. It warms your soul and this Halloumi will absolutely give you the same feeling! Fresh milk taste, moderate salt and surprisingly smooth texture is what you’ll find when you enjoy L’Artisan Halloumi. Grill & add to a salad or devour it on its own with a drop of olive oil!
Fermier translates to “farmhouse” and this cheese certainly does give a feeling of hand made labours of love. But when the wheel is cut open, it reveals something quite special that is rarely seen in the more modern cheese making world - a layer of ash. This process is called Morbier. Over the centuries, any left over curds were put into a mould and a layer of ash sprinkled over the top to preserve it for the next day’s production. This process of layers of curd were continued until the hoop was full and the cheese was formed.
Great cheese starts with great milk. In this case, Matthieu gets his organic milk from cows grazing near Victoria’s Great Ocean Road. Petit Fleuri is a surface ripened white mould cheese developed made from organic milk with added cream, this luscious double brie cheese has a rich yellow coloured interior. Expect nothing less than an indulgently rich, creamy, buttery flavour texture and mild, creamy flavour, with just a hint of garlic chives.
Petit Le Rouge
The cheesemaker is the master of the petrie dish of moulds and bacteria as they select which to make with their cheese. A strong Washed Rind, this little number has vigorous pungent flavours, yet is complex with a surprisingly oozy texture when ripe. Using a combination of yeast producing rind washing and bacteria, the Petite Rouge has a signature aroma and flavour.
Blessed are the cheesemakers.
