Cantal is one of the most archaic cheeses of all time. This AOC certified cheese is named after the French d’Auvergne’s mountainous region where it is made and has been referenced in writings of Pliny the Elder from the 1st Century AD! Usually simply referred to as Cantal, there are actually three names that help distinguish the type of aging a wheel receives. Rodolphe le Meunier’s Cantal is referred to as an “Entre-Doux” identifying it as being aged from 2-6 months. Specifying it as “Fermier” indicates it’s a farmstead cheese made from raw milk. Buttery and Rich, Cantal Entre-Doux is like a hybrid of a clothbound cheddar and the best comte. It’s sharp and sweet with a tang akin to the grassy mountain meadows from which the cows graze.
