Époisses

If you've followed my cheese exploits you would know that I especially love washed rind cheese. It's no real surprise that when I first saw this mini Époisses at the deli, that it would end up in my basket.

There's also no surprise that I'm keeping this "smelly cheese" under a glass dome.

Époisses is a cows milk cheese from Burgundy, the cheese is washed with brine and then local wine and spirits which gives the rind that tell-tale orange colouring.

Though it has a pungent aroma, the interior is soft and gooey and quite mild in taste.
