A mild and nutty sheep's milk cheese with a slight tanginess and a distinctive basket-weave rind, P'tit Basque is a perennial favorite. Because of it's small size and shape it is the perfect centerpiece for a cheese tray: The whole wheel is only 1.5 pounds so it is the perfect size for a small get together, and it's pleasant, mild taste is always a crowd pleaser. Made in the Basque region where France and Spain share a border and the famous cuisine is influenced by both country's long traditions of excellent food production. This incredible little cheese is similar in flavor to it's French relative Ossau-Iraty, but comes in a much smaller package.

Ingredients:pasteurized sheep milk, salt, rennet, calcium chloride, lactic starters, surface culturing: caramel, annato.
