Piper's Pyramide

Piper's Pyramide is a lactic curd chevre, modelled after the French Valencay and named after Judy's red-haired granddaughter Piper. After the cheese is unmolded, it is dried slightly and placed in a cave for further ripening of about two or three weeks. Creamy and dense, the cheese is dusted with a slight coating of paprika under the wrinkled, white rind.

The texture of Piper's Pyramide is moist and velvety with hints of piquancy. Flavours are milky, bright refreshing, slightly sweet and buttery, with a musty edge. Pair a young Piper's Pyramide with crisp, light wines and sparkling wines or rose. As it matures, you could try it with sweet whites like sauternes or moscatos.
