L'Artisan ExtravagantVictoria, Australia Pasteurised Organic Cow's Milk
Third generation cheese maker Matthieu Megard uses local organic milk from a single herd of Jersey cows to make L'Artisan Extravagant. Longing for the traditional cheeses of the French Alps where he grew up, Matthieu set out to make cheeses that reflect the terroir of the harsh landscape of the Great Ocean Road, whilst capturing the essence of some of France’s most loved cheeses.
L'Artisan Extravagant is a decadent triple cream cheese with a fluffy white mould and creamy paste, in the style of the French Brillat Savarin.
Mild and creamy when young, it develops a soft bite and softening texture at maturity. It reflects the softer side of the local climate and the generosity of the western Victoria pasture. Perfect with Champagne!
