  • It's from France!

  • It's cow's milk.

  • The name came from the milking technique which holds back a little milk. It literally means, to pinch a cow's udder again!

  • Enjoy the idea of milking (lol) a landowner like a 13th century french, Savoie herdsmen who made this cheese from the milk they kept behind from the system of bartering goods for rent.
