Cantal is one of the oldest French Cheeses, predating both Roquefort (11th Century) and Livarot (13th Century). In fact, Pliny the Elder mentions Cantal in his "Historia Naturalis" written in the 1st Century AD. Cantal was originally produced by putting the curd into "le formage", a wooden cylinder, which is believed to be the origin for the French word for cheese. Named after the Cantal Mountains in Auvergne, this cheese has been dear to the French throughout history. For example, in medieval times it was the courtly custom to send a gift of cheese to impress or to people one admired. Cantal is made from raw cow's milk with the curd being heated before pressing. This AOC cheese has a smooth, grayish-brown rind with a smooth, pale yellow, close-textured interior. Cantal has a milky aroma, a nutty flavor with a hint of tangy butteriness, and a slightly acidic finish. Aged from three to nine months, it is prone to blue mold (fleur de bleu) which the French gladly eat, but can also be cut off if this is not your preference. Try Cantal in a French ploughman's platter, in soups or sauces, or to flavor muffins or gratins. But, ignore this description and take advice from a French poet: "To elaborate on Cantal is an error of taste; it is all simplicity".

Disappointing
My husband grew up loving Cantal. This is not what he remembered even from a few years ago. I brought home better from Berlin a few years ago. Please try to get something less sharp and less "homogenized".

Can't Tell
Every time I share my homemade pizza with a friend they ask what kind of cheese is on my pizza. I always say, can't tell. Then I share with them the story of France's oldest and finest cheese Cantal. Goodbye mozzerela.

Surprisingly boring!
Even at room temperature, this is a pretty dull cheese. I can't even think of a description for it - it just tastes like cheese. Not very salty, not very pungent, not very sharp, just... cheese. It's remarkable in its unremarkability.

pow chica wow wow !!
This is my 3rd order.Ordered for me before ,and for my middle sister drama queen, and her francophile boy friend. The cheese arrives vacuum packed.It starts to age when you remove the packing.The crust is tastes a whole lot better than it looks.I recommend this for a cheese board for entertaining. Also, if you want something with some bread and a glass of wine-this is worth a try.
