Caring For Your Cheese
Shipping Notes

Crottin is a cave aged goat cheese, notably the most famous cheese produced in the Loire Valley of France. The people of the town of Berry have been aging their Crottin in caves since the 16th century. Crottin can be enjoyed during many different stages of its aging. When it is younger, it has a rustic and creamy flavor but as it ages it takes on a more intense flavor that is often described as piquant. The small size of the wheels makes it a wonderful snack if you are in the mood for something special, but its rich flavors and textures and elegant presentation make it perfect to serve as an appetizer with sliced fruit or olives. Try pairing Crottin with a sparkling wine; the different mouth feels will compliment each other nicely. If you don’t care for sparkling wines, a Pinot Noir would also do your Crottin justice.

Upon receipt of your order the ice pack may no longer be frozen. This is expected and should not be the cause of alarm. The cheese should be cool to room temperature. Once rewrapped and stored properly the cheese will last up to 3 weeks.

For optimal storage allowing the cheese to breathe and retain moisture wrap the cheese in wax paper, plastic wrap or tin foil upon arrival.

A - Bloomy rind, tomes, hard or dry rind cheeses - wrap only the cut surface in plastic wrap, leaving the rind exposed so the cheese can breathe.

B - Blue cheeses should be wrapped securely in tin foil.

C - Washed rind cheeses should be wrapped in wax paper.

D - Small cheeses such as goat’s milk crottin should be wrapped in wax paper.

E - Soft cheeses store well in waxed paper or sealed containers.

Store your cheese in a cool, damp place such as a wine cellar, larder, wine cabinet, or in the vegetable drawer of your refrigerator (the warmest part of the refrigerator).

As a general rule, aged hard cheeses last longer than softer, less aged varieties.

For the fullest flavor it is recommended to bring cheese to room temperature before serving.
