This cheese is intimidating, but for the brave among us something truly delicious awaits. A legendary stinker, but in a good way! This famous and very pungent cheese from France has a reputation that precedes it. Lift up the lid on its wooden box and you’ll smell it first: the bold aroma of dried hay and meat. The sight also makes an impression: its vivid orange wrinkly rind is like a work of art.

Inside the flavor is much softer than the smell. It’s bold yet balanced and tastes nothing like the aroma. Savory notes of salted beef and butter prevail. Depending on the age, the interior might be slightly firm, or ooze into a puddle. This cheese is classically paired with syrupy sweet beverages and jams. A bold sweet flavor plays nicely with the bold savory notes of the cheese. For beverages, try a big red wine that can stand up to the cheese.

Ingredients:pasteurized cow's milk, salt, bacterial culture, rennet, marc de Bourgogne.
