Munster is an old French cheese, old in the sense of being around for a long time. This gourmet cheese was accepted into the AOC family in 1978. Munster cheese was born in a monastery in Alsace, an area in the northeast of France. While visiting Alsace or any region of France, you may often find Munster served with cumin or caraway seeds on the side.
During its maturing, Munster is turned frequently and washed with warm water from the Vosges. This method develops a slightly wrinkled and moist rind, which comes from the washing. Over time the rind turns from yellow to red and that coating protects the cheese as it ages.
Munster is widely appreciated, by cheese connoisseurs and this French stinky cheese can be eaten in many different ways. The most traditional way is to serve it with a glass of Gewurztraminer wine; the perfect complement to Munster Cheese.
