Inspired by cheeses of the Mediterranean region, Little Antoines are a soft and spreadable delicacy. Higher in butterfat than sheep’s milk, the flavour is fresh with a mellow tang and a rich dense finish. Spread on fresh sourdough, warm baguette or bagel and you’ll quickly realize why this style of cheese has been a staple in the old world for over 5000 years.
Storage Recommendations – To prevent mold growth, keep oil level above cheese. If using fresh, Little Antoines can stay at room temperature for a few days. For longer storage keep submerged in the oil and store in a root cellar (to prevent oil hardening) or refrigerator for several months.
Please note – Every wheel of Back Forty cheese is carefully crafted, cut and packaged by hand. As a result each wedge or package will slightly vary in size and weight. Sizes are approximations based on our average wheel weight.
