Fol Epi

Fol Epi® is a cow's milk cheese produced in the Loire Valley of France. It is very protein-rich, making it a perfect choice for the health-conscious gourmet cheese lover. The words "Fol Epi" mean "wild wheat stalk" in French – a fitting name for this smooth cheese enrobed in a golden-brown rind. The name is reminiscent of its unique loaf shape and its distinctive rind design with embossed decoration. Fol Epi has a nutty taste, similar to a fine Emmental. It is an excellent cheese for snacking or for serving with hearty breads, fruits, or in salads. Ideal for snacks, it's also available in convenient slice packaging for your gourmet sandwiches.

ORIGIN

Fol Epi Cheese Fol Epi is produced in Pays de Loire, a region of France widely known for its dairy production. Its unique recipe is inspired by Emmental cheese. The cheese is aged up to three months to achieve its distinctive taste. Compared to a Swiss-style cheese, Fol Epi is sweeter and less bitter or rustic, making it the perfect choice for those with sensitive palates. It is more delicate in flavor, but still has the traditional holes of a Swiss cheese, and is assertive enough to not be overpowered by other ingredients. Fol Epi has a somewhat sweet nutty and fruity flavor. Enjoy Fol Epi as an appetizer…serve it in cubes with cherry tomatoes or in other salads…slice it on your sandwich…or just nibble on it! Melting Fol Epi on a gratin will enhance its nutty taste. Fol Epi goes well with Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinot Noir wines.

I adore this cheese and buy it in Manhattan, NYC, NY at Agatha and Valentina around 10th Street and University Place, but it's very expensive there but I'm looking for a cheaper source. Any suggestions? I'd even buy a whole wheel on line if I could

To Jennifer in Delaware. I don't know where in Delaware you happen to live, but we have a house in Fenwick Island. This past weekend when we were there, I purchased some Fol Epi at the Harris Teeter Bayside, F.I. Not sure if they carry the cheese all of the time but they did have a good amount. It was on sale, as well,for $8.99/lb. with a regular price of $18.99...quite a sale and really good cheese. Hope this may be of some help to you as other Harris Teeter's may also sell the cheese.
