Mothais a la Feuille
Le Mothais sur Feuille (or Mothais la Feuille or Mothais), is a goat's milk cheese that hails from the Poitou-Charentes region in western France. Originating in the town of Mothe-Saint-Héray, this cheese earned an AOC designation in 2002 to safeguard its exceptional quality.
Made from fresh raw goat's milk, the cheese undergoes maturation on sweet chestnut leaves gathered during the initial frosts. This unique process imparts a distinctive flavour to the cheese. Moreover, the leaves play a role in absorbing moisture from the cheese, resulting in a softer, creamier texture and a thinner rind.
