Cantal is a cheese from an area of the same name in France and is produced using pasteurized cow's milk. This cheese comes from Pays Vert in Auvergne and is produced throughout the region in the Cantal department and in 41 villages in the departments of Aveyron, Corréze, Haute-Loire, and Puy-de-Dôme.
