milk: cow type: hard, cooked curd
C2 is the sort of cheese found throughout the mountains of France and northern Italy. A classic cooked curd cheese made in traditional wooden hoops. C2 matures for 6 - 12 months, during which time it develops a sweet aroma and a mildly nutty flavour. The rind is wiped every week to encourage the surface bacteria that provide this cheese with much of its robust integrity.
