La Tomme d’Elles
La Tomme d’Elles is an artisanal cheese with a white-spotted brownish rind. It has a beige paste boasting floral aromas and a rather pronounced fruit and herb taste. La Tomme d’Elles is a tribute to women in general… and to the cheesemaker’s mother and mother-in-law in particular. Originally the cheese’s label was a montage of two photos from 1945 and 1965 featuring these two ladies at age 20.
