Cow’s milk Gaperon
The name Gaperon comes from “gape”, which means “buttermilk” in Auvergnat.
This “butter milk” or “beaten milk” was once mixed with fresh milk to make Gaperon. It was ripened in the open air, hung on the main beam of the kitchen.
Depending on the number of gaperons on show, you could estimate the dowry of the daughter of the house because, at the time, butter was regarded as a noble product and a sign of wealth of the family.
Our Gaperons are handcrafted, moulded by hand and are charmingly not all of the same size.
Gaperon is a pasteurised cow’s or goat’s milk cheese with garlic and pepper.
It comes in the form of a 250g dome with a white rind and its fresh paste is very soft and airy.
When young, its taste is fresh and its paste is smooth. As time goes on, it takes on its distinctive character, so cheese lovers be warned!
