Cantal Cheese


Cantal is a firm cheese from the Cantal region of France. It is named after the Cantal mountains in the Auvergne region, where it is from. It is one of the oldest cheeses in France, and dates back to the times of the Gauls. It came to prominence when it was served at the table of Louis XIV of France by the Marchal de Sennecterre. It is a semi-hard cheese that is aged for several months. It has a soft interior with a flavor somewhat reminiscent of cheddar.
