P’tit Basque is a pure sheep’s milk cheese that was created by the French dairy giant Lactalis in 1997. It is a semi-hard cheese that is aged for a 70 day period during which it develops a light brown rind with a basket weave patter. The small wheels of cheese are then covered in plastic wrap to prevent molding. The flavor of this smooth, creamy cheese is mild, earthy, and nutty. It has a fresh, distinctive aroma of sheep’s milk and is excellent paired with fruits, grilled vegetables, cured meats, and salads.
