Fourme D’Ambert

$10.00

1/4oz Wedge

This cheese is in rare Fourme. Made from pasteurized cow’s milk in Auvergne, each wheel of this little Frenchie is formed from unpressed curds inoculated with a less spicy blue mold than that of its cousin, Roquefort. Hand-selected from the cheese maker, these wheels have a velvety mouthfeel full of sweet cream and an earthy, mushroomy roundness that will convert even the staunchest blue cheese hater. Add Tawny port and fresh pears, and you’ve got dessert.

Description

Mimolette’s striking appearance may remind some of a cantaloupe but it is actually a French copy of Edam.  Dyed a deep orange color & allowed to form a natural rind, it is a wonderful cheese to have on any cheese board.  Firm though surprisingly creamy texturally, Mimolette has a mild & smooth flavor becoming subtly sharp towards the end
