Maturation: minimum 4 weeks
Cheese Type: Uncooked, soft cheese with washed rind
In the village of Saint-Julien-de-Concelles in Vendée, the encounter of a local farmer, Pierre Hivert, and a visiting priest during the French Revolution, led to the creation of a cheese called “Régal des Gourmets”. A few years later, paying tribute to the clergyman, the cheese was renamed ”Curé Nantais”.
Beneath its washed yellow straw to orange sticky rind, a smooth paste reveals smoky and slightly spicy flavour followed by milky notes. You can eat it accompanied by pear or apple slices and a glass of mellow wine as a Muscadet.

Good smoked cheese
Paul C –
This is a decent smoked cheese. Perhaps not as strongly smokey as some but, as suggested in the description, it goes well with an apple.
