What a incredible looking cheese! It is easy to see why it is called Tomme Brulee from the beautifully singed rind, just like a brulee. This unique cheese is from the Basque region of France and made from ewe's milk. At the end of maturation, the rind is singed with a naked flame which leaves the burnt effect, but does not detract from the taste. This cheese is also unique in the way that it can be curled, just like a Tete de Moine!

    Not a lot of flavour, but a good cheese for holding shape, easy to cut.
