Edith is a traditional French style goat’s milk cheese that is rolled in ash. The cheese blooms a velvety white mould rind two weeks after it is made. Once there is sufficient coverage of white mould, the cheese is then rolled in ash which adds a beautifully decorative appearance. This cheese can be enjoyed at various stages depending on personal preferences. A young Edith is mild and creamy and the acid present in the young cheese makes it lively and fresh. When the cheese matures the flavour will have an increased intensity and the interior changes to a velvety runny consistency with a noticeable drop in the acid level on the palate.
