Fleur du Maquis
Coating the melt-in-the-mouth, nutty interior is a herbalicious crust.
This fresh cheese has a smooth consistency that is tender and supple, with a distinctly savoury flavour. Fleur de Maquis meaning “flower of the Maquis” is a Corsican cheese that uses local ewes milk, made distinct by its rind. The rind consists of rosemary, juniper berrys and fennel seeds, which infuse into the cheese giving it a distinct aromatic, herby flavour.
Fleur du Maquis pairs better with savory flavors than with sweet things like fruit. Try it with olives, tomatoes, and fresh peppers.
