Ullrich Fichtner of French Food Fool had the brilliant idea of opening his virtual Cheese University breaking the topic into small morsels by tackling one cheese at a time.
On February 4, Valencay was Lesson 13.
This unpasteurazed goat milk cheese from the Berry (Loire Valley) can be instantly spotted thanks to its pyramid shape and ash dusting.
Keep up the good work Ullrich, a few hundred more cheeses to go.
