This listing is for a 1.3Lb cylinder of ISTARA P’tit Basque sheep’s milk cheese from the French Pyrenees.
This normally retails for about $28.00 ea., but because of a special end-lot deal from the importer, we are able to offer a very limited amount of this fine cheese for $13.00 ea.
This semi-soft sheep’s milk cheese is handmade in the French Pyrenees. The Pyrenees Mountain range, a natural border that divides France and Spain, is populated by the Basques, a people who have their own customs and language. Although the Basques live on both sides of the border, they produce this cheese on the French side. Amidst the breathtaking, rolling mountains of the Pyrenees, vast pastures stretch as far as the eye can see, providing fertile grazing for milk-producing sheep. P’tit Basque, made from pure sheep’s milk, has a slightly oily texture and an earthy, nutty flavor. It comes to us in a whole, uncut cylinder, offering a beautiful presentation as well as a lovely taste.
