Fol Epi is enrobed in a golden brownish rind made from toasted wheat flour. This pressed uncooked French gourmet cheese is produced in Pays de Loire, an area long known for its dairy produce.
In French, Fol Epi means 'wild wheat stalk', a fitting name for this unique loaf with perfect eye formation.
Fol Epi is matured for three months and is decoratively embossed and has a pleasant, nutty and fruity taste. Although similar in taste to a Swiss Emmental, Fol Epi is sweeter and less bitter, making it a ideal for a sensitive palate.
