A small sticky pale orange washed rind double cream cheese, washed in Marc deBourgogne. Creamy pungent centre and a slightly meaty taste. Similar to the first washed rind cheeses dating back to 90 AD, EpoissesdeBourgogne was originally made by the Maroilles Abbey monks in the sixteenth century! Fabulous baked in its box (which is made with wood from the Jura mountains), baked over sliced potatoes or served simply with a nutty slice or two of bread.
Infinitely better than the factory produced bries.The paste of the cheese should be the colour of straw with as little as possible 'chalkyness' in the centre.The rind is white and as it ages gains a pinkish hue. Much stronger and refined flavour than factory bries. Ripens for 6-8 weeks.AOC. Made with unpasteurised cows milk.
