L’artisan Marcel – 180g
Region of origin: Timboon, Victoria
Rind: Wrinkly white mould
Texture: Fudgey & oozy
Third generation cheese maker Matthieu Megard uses local organic milk from a single herd of Jersey cows to make his range of cheeses. Longing for the traditional cheeses of the French Alps where he grew up, Matthieu set out to make cheeses that reflected the local Victorian terroir whilst capturing the essence of some of France’s most loved cheeses. L’Artisan Marcel is a nod to the traditional French cheese Saint-Marcellin, made with organic Jersey cow’s milk and had a wonderfully wrinkly golden geotrichum rind. The cheese has a melting layer under the surface, leading to a fudgy centre, which will develop over time to become rich and oozy. It’s flavour is earthy, slightly fruity and lactic.
