The Basque country is located on both side of the Spanish/French border on the Western part of the Pyrenean mountains. A whole specific culture and origin, the Basques keep with lots of pride their traditions and amongst others their knowledge to make great cheeses. The Etorki is one of them, made from local sheep’s milk in Mauléon, in the French Basque country.
Type of milk: Sheep
Available at Les Amis du fromage. Extraordinaire cheese store in Vancouver with a wonderful and knowledgeable staff!
Have a look at this video on how to incorporate some Etorki cheese on tapas made of baguettes.
Originally from France, I moved to Vancouver, BC in 1997 after falling in love with the city while searching for a training base for a round-the-world athletic expedition. I’m an athlete turned actor, and very much involved in endurance sports. Three times IRONMAN® finisher.
