Valencay (pre-order)

The AOC has designated that Valencay is one of France's elite cheeses. Century-old techniques are used to make Valencay. This white cheese is made in the shape of a pyramid with the point missing at the top. It was first made into a perfect pyramid until Napoleon, after losing his campaign in Egypt, caught a glance at the cheese and it reminded him of the Egyptian pyramids. In a violent outrage, he chopped off the top of it with his sword. Afterwards, cheese makers throughout France were ordered to created Valencay the way Napoleon “revised it.” It has a nutty flavor. This cheese matures for 3 weeks before it is ready for sale.
