Region: Burgundy, France

Milk: Pasteurised Cow

Not for the faint hearted this epic cheese is banned from public transport in Paris.

Not surprising really as it is one of the ‘super-stinkies’!

Washed with a local grape spirit during its maturation, to encourage the development of a sticky, orange rind with rich mushroomy and cured meat flavours. So soft it literally runs off the plate and needs a good chunck of crusty bread to ensure not a bit gets left behind.
