Shipping Notes

P’tit Basque if a French sheep’s milk cheese of enormous popularity. Over 400,000 pounds of P’tit Basque are exported out of France each year. What really makes this surprising is that it’s a fairly new cheese, only created in 1997; its speedy accent to fame is the best assurance of its quality.

If you do not think you are a sheep’s milk lover, than P’tit Basque is worth a try anyway. It’s mellow flavor and buttery texture is less ‘gamey’ then older sheep’s milk cheeses can often be described as. If you are entertaining a crowd that may be a bit shy, or dare I say sheepish, around sheep’s milk cheese, this sweet and brown buttery selection will get them off to a gentle start. 

Include black cherry preserves with your cheese platter as a classic French salty and sweet combination.  Enjoy your P’tit Basque with a glass of Tempranillo in hand

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.

* See cheese label for proper storage recommendations
