Tomme Crayeuse is a French cheese originating from the region of Savoie.
Crayeuse, meaning "Chalky," is an integral characteristic of this raw cow's milk cheese from Savoie. The cheese is set to age in a warm, moist cave that speeds ripening, developing a thick, creamy outer layer. When moved to a cooler cave, ripening slows, leaving an interior dense and chalky. It's made from raw cow's milk and it's left to age in caves from 2 to 4 months before consumption.
The rind of Tomme Crayeuse is grayish brown with yellow moldy patches that develop as the cheese ages. The taste of the cheese is slightly soft with citrus notes and somewhat earthy.
The flavors are complex: mushroomy, buttery, and lactic with lemony notes.
