Etorki Cheeese

Etorki is a modern cheese dating from the late ’70s, similar to traditional Basque country cheeses, but it is more supple and close textured.

It’s made in the French Basque country, at Mauléon-Licharre in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques department. It is made from pasteurized sheep milk and pulp pressed, not cooked, then matured for seven weeks.

Etorki has a bright yellow interior, rich texture and a nutty finish. The sheep’s milk gives the cheese burnt-caramel flavor.
