Olivet cendré cheese
Olivet cendré, also called cendré d'Olivet, is from Olivet, on the river Loire. It is made from cows’ milk collected during the spring, when the cows graze along the banks of the river, and when their milk is believed to have the best flavour. It is then matured for at least one month, and preferably two, under charcoal.
Traditionally, the cheese was aged in ash made from burning the clippings of grape-vines from the vineyard. It is made in cylinders, which have a grey skin from the ash. It has an earthy aroma, and is considered to have a delicate flavour.
