Valençay Fermier AOP

Regular price Dhs. 69.00

Valençay cheese is one of the classic French cheeses made in the province of Berry in central France. It is named after the town of Valençay in the Indre department. Its rind has a rustic blue-grey colour which is made of natural moulds, and is then darkened by natural charcoal powder. 

La petite histoire: Valençay used to have the shape of a perfect pyramid with a pointed top. But when Napoleon returned to the castle of Valençay after his unsuccessful expedition in Egypt, he saw the cheese, and in a fit of rage drew his sword and cut off the top of the cheese. Since then the cheese has always been made with a flattened top!

Our Valençay is awarded AOP ("Appellation d’Origine Protégée", which means Protected Designation of Origin). The AOP mark is the highest distinction awarded by the European Union and confirms the excellence of a product, its artisanship and unimpeachable quality.
