Lou Bergier Pichin (Lou Bergier) is made with raw cow's milk, thistle flowers and vegetable rennet in Piemonte, Italy. This toma cheese is semi-soft and delicate. The cheese name meaning “small mountain shepherd” in Occitan dialect. Lou Bergier is a open textured cheese with a pale yellow velvety paste and mottled brown and grey rind. It is aged for 60 days, during which the cheese develops flavours of mushrooms with hints of butter and barnyard and aromas of freshly cut grass and milk.

Serve Lou Bergier with crisp white wine or lightly fruity red wine to enhance its flavour.
