Cure Nantais cheese is also known as 'Nantais'. Its history dates back to the French revolution. A priest from Vendee named 'Cure' made this cheese for the first who was trying to escape from persecution by the French.
Though Nantais was produced on local farms for many years, it is now produced in several modern dairies with a traditional process.
Nantais is served along with fish dishes or over pears and apples. It is also used in gratins or tarts.
If paired with white wine, Gros Plant or Muscadet, Nantais cheese tastes the best.
