Sheep Cheese – Nota Bene 3

Another episode with my wonderful parents.  We’re an absurd family tasting an absurd cheese.

My family and I had a fromage brebis at lunch today that had a really unique and knock-your-socks-off flavor. Brebis is a female sheep. We like cheese and we actually enjoy sheep cheese on a regular basis.

This is an exception though. Man, this cheese tastes the way a petting zoo smells. I’m not sure what to make of it, but it’s a Pyrenees cheese (south of Roussillon) and so it’s part of the food and culture of the Languedoc Roussillon. I hope you like this short bonus episode more than we liked the cheese.

Family Food & Wine Pairing – Love that Languedoc Episode 2

Welcome to the second episode of Love that Languedoc (and our first English language episode).  In the first official French episode, we were visited by the director of the Chamber of Agriculture of Aude and we tasted two wines that display the intensely varied profiles you can find in the Languedoc.  In the first official English video I will retaste those wines with my parents as we try to pair the wines with foods from the Languedoc-Roussillon.

My second-favorite part is when my mom starts shouting out to her homies. My favorite part is when she does it again. :D I also like when my dad and I accidentally say consummating instead of consumption.

The wines:
Le Clos des chênes 2006 , Domaine de Cazes, AOC Malpère
La Grenadière 2007, Mas Bruguière, AOC Pic Saint-Loup Coteaux du Languedoc

The food pairing:
With the Domaine de Cazes: Mom marinates fresh red bell peppers in basil-infused olive oil and serves the peppers on a toast with a thin slice of saucisson.
With the Mas Bruguière: Smoked sausage with a Pyrénées tomme melted on top, served on thinly sliced baked potato.

Key concepts:
Département de l’Aude
Malpère
Pic Saint-Loup
