This firm unripened cheese is made with pasteurized milk. The lighter, milder side of garlic scape is added for extra flavour. Perfect as a snack or appetizer, it can also be added to certain dishes, especially as a topping for browning. Give it a try in this Lamb kofta with nuts and honey recipe.
The Fleur d’Ail cheese is available from the cheese maker, in specialty grocery stores and cheese shop, and some supermarkets.
