Cantal Entre-deux, a semi-hard cheese hailing from France’s Auvergne region, holds the esteemed title of being considered the grandfather of all cheeses. Its roots trace back to ancient times, as Pliny the Elder mentioned it in his book ‘Natural History,’ highlighting its esteemed status as the most revered cheese in Rome. The cheese-making cloths were even washed in the Lac des Salhiens. Popular during the Middle Age, it received its name in the 8th century, solidifying its enduring legacy.

This one is called “Entre-deux” literally “between the two” because of its maturation time. There are 3 kinds of Cantal: the young one aged between 1 and 2 months, “Entre deux” aged between 3 and 7 months, and the oldest one called “Vieux” aged for 8 months minimum.

The cheese features hazelnut hints with a citrusy and fruity finish. Its aroma is a bit more marked than younger Cantal and has some toasted brioche notes.
Should be stored in the refrigerator in parchment paper.

Wine Pairing:

Red wines (Chinon, Faugeres, Saint-Joseph)
Dry white wines (Saint-Pourçain)

    Exceptional cheese! It has just the right balance of nuttiness and tanginess.

  2. Kenneth Chow

    as good as a aged comte

  3. Paul C

    This is rather nice – a sort of upmarket more interesting version of cheddar!

  4. Mr. P (verified owner)

    Good, a bit crumbly though.
