Salers, one of France’s oldest cheeses, boasts a millennial history dating back to the time of Pliny the Elder. During the Middle Age, peasants and farmers centred their lives around producing these colossal cheese wheels. Each spring, the farmers would lead their cows to the lush mountain pastures for better air and grass, spending the entire summer in isolation. Remarkably, this tradition of summer pasturing endures, although farmers remain connected to the outside world. Today, the production of Salers cheese is limited to the spring and autumn seasons, and the use of a wooden “Gerle” tank has become mandatory to attain the AOP label. Often compared to Cantal, Salers stands apart as a semi-hard to hard cheese made exclusively from Salers cow’s milk. Its yellow paste delights with flavours reminiscent of wildflowers, butter, and fresh grass.

To be enjoyed with a few nuts and a drizzle of honey for a perfect snack.

  1. Rain

    A bit too gamey for me

  2. Claud

    Slightly salty, nice to eat on its own or baked

  3. Mary H.

    Very tasty – a mix of nutty and floral, with a nice sharp edge.
