Cheese making Mould 11 - Sq Pyramid 80mm x 85mm tall
All prices exclusive of VAT where applicable
We supply a range of cheese moulds that are all manufactured from special 'Dairythene' plastic for easy sterilisation.
Each mould is drilled with numerous holes to allow the whey to escape. In production these moulds are usually lined with a cheese cloth prior to filling with curd and set on a cheese mat to ensure complete drainage: this is especially important if the cheese is pressed.
This particular one is known as a Valençay mould with its truncated pyramidal shape. Valençay is an unpasteurized goats milk cheese weighing around 30grams and around 7cm (3") in height. Its rustic blue-grey colour is made by the natural moulds that form its rind, darkened with a dusting of charcoal. The size is 85mm tall x 57mm square at the base and 80mm square at the top (3.34" x 2.24" x 3.15").
