Auvergne is a mountainous region in the center of France that consists of rugged mountain ranges cut by four great rivers: the Loire, the Cher, the Dordogne, and the Lot. The area is known for its skiing, but also for its amazing production of cheeses, fruits, and vegetables. One of these fine cheeses is Saint Nectaire, which comes from a small town near the breath-taking ski capital of MontDore. Saint Nectaire is an ancient, natural-rinded, soft-textured monastery cheese with a mild and fruity flavor. Its smooth, buttery texture and pungent aroma are characteristic of many good French cheeses.
Produced at altitudes exceeding 1,000 meters, where the air and water are clean and pure, Saint Nectaire cheese is still made using traditional methods. Its milk is taken from cows that graze outside on mountain grasses peppered with wild flowers. After its initial production, each wheel is placed on a handmade straw mat, then aged in an underground cellar for at least two months.
