Smelly Cheese Co
This cheese is a pasteurised variation of the very famous Morbier. Legend has it that this cheese was originally made for personal consumption by the workers producing Comté. A mixture of wood ash and salt was sprinkled over any leftover fresh curd from the morning’s milk in order to keep insects away and prevent a rind forming. Any remaining curd from that evening’s milk was then placed on top. Whereas the ash layer was more recently purely decorative, this cheese uses powdered grape to create the line. The cheese has a natural rind with a supple and soft interior exhibiting both savoury and fruity notes.
