Pyramide de Tradition Valencay

P. Jacquin & Fils: Pyramide de Tradition Valencay Aged Goat Cheese

The specific pyramid shape with missing capstone of this cheese lends to the story that Napoleon was presented with a pyramid-shaped cheese while visiting the castle of Valencay, after his recent trip to Egypt. As temperamental as Napoleon is known for, he drew his sword and cut the top of the cheese off. Valencay is french aged goat cheese that is mild yet aromatic. Nutty with a lemon tang, this french cheese strengthens in flavor and hardens as it ages.
