Picodon is a round goat cheese, whose name comes from the Occitan dialect in the South of France, and which means “to tingle”. It is easy to recognise with its pleasant smell, its tender heart and its delightful nutty aromas.
This cheese matures at least 2 weeks and up to 3 months, for those who want to obtain a cheese with a lot of personality.

Did you know that ?
Picodon is the first cheese that ever did a tour around Earth, in a space shuttle! The astronaut Jean-Jacques Favier indeed took 14 cheeses along with him in 1995, on board the American shuttle: Columbia. A big trip for a very small cheese!
