Crayeux de Roncq cheese
Square in shape, its texture is grainy, soft and creamy with a chalky centre. At a height of 4.5cm and measuring 10 cm square, it weighs about 300 grams and contains only 27% fat. It is moulded by hand with a ladle and ideally matured for 2 months, during which it is regularly washed with salt water and beer.
Crayeux de Roncq was created by master cheesemakers Theresa-Marie Olivier and Philippe Couvreur. Marie-Therese, the only producer, owns a farm just 20 km from Lille in Roncq.
