Pelardon des Cevennes

Pelardon is a traditional, unpasteurised, fresh table cheese made from goat's milk. The thin, wrinkled, natural rind has white and pale blue moulds. Softer and more mousse-like than most goat's milk cheeses when young, the flavour of Pelardon suggests sour cream with walnut oil, balanced by a gentle, salty finish. When aged, the rind has a different goaty aroma and an intense Brazil-nut sweetness. The texture is drier, but the cheese is still very creamy. It is made in several areas in the Languedoc region. Season for indulging is from March to October.
