We'd like to introduce you to our latest delivery, Mimolette - a cheese with a lot of character (and we're not just talking about its flavor).
It was created at the request of Louis XIV, who wanted an Edam style cheese that he
could call his. To differentiate it from Edam, it's colored with annatto, giving it its
signature orange color. Is it just us, or does this cheese look like a cantaloupe?
What else you ask? Cheese mites are intentionally introduced to the cheese to add flavor
to the paste (interior) and color to the exterior.
