Cheesemaking Mold No.11 - Pyramid Square
We supply a range of cheese molds that are all manufactured from special 'Dairythene' plastic for easy sterilization.
Each mold 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 mold with its truncated pyramidal shape. Valençay is an unpasteurized goats milk cheese weighing around ½ lb and around 7cm (3”) in height. Its rustic blue-grey color is made by the natural molds that form its rind, darkened with a dusting of charcoal. Size is 3.34” x 2.24” x 3.15”.
