Poivre d'Ane

Unpasteurised, natural-rind cheese of round shape made from the mixture of cow's, sheep's and goat's milk. The cheese has its name according to summer savory, a southern European herb similar to thyme and mint, with a peppery bite which gives the cheese its characteristic flavour. The natural rind is white with a hint of blue or yellow. Poivre d'Ane is very similar to Banon cheese and the period of ripening is about one month. The content of fat is 45 per cent.
