This washed-rind cheese’s name comes from the small town where it’s made, Saint Georges, tucked away in a French region largely known for its medieval castles, like the Romanesque Abbey Church of St. Foy.
Tomme Saint Georges, a French, semi-soft, sheep’s milk cheese is a bit of a cross between Ossau Iraty and a traditional French Tomme such as Tomme de Savoie. Most Tomme-style cheeses produced in the French and Swiss Alps use cow's milk, but Tomme Saint Georges breaks with that tradition. Tomme Saint Georges’ paste is moist and creamy. Its flavor profile reminds us of a sauce or bisque made from sweet cream, chives, and leeks. You might pick up on some bread-like yeasty qualities. Consider pairing it with bolder wines and beers along with prosciutto, honey or dried fruit.
