Fleur de Maquis

Fleur du Maquis is one of my favourite cheeses. It is one of a family of similar cheeses that come from Corsica. They are all made from sheep’s milk, some unpasteurized and some pasteurized. The rounds are usually small, from two hundred to five hundred grams each. Once the cheese is made and is still fresh, the wheels are rolled in “maquis, the native scrub that grows all over Corsica, similar to garrigue, the wild scrub growing in Provence. In Corsica, maquis is often a mix of thyme, oregano, myrtle and nepeta, an indigenous mint, as well as immortelle, a deeply fragrant curry plant and can even include peppers and juniper berries.
