Launched in 1971, Chaumes is a relatively new cheese. A Trappist-style, washed rind cow's milk cheese, Chaumes is a mild flavored and supple with a distinct orange rind. Chaumes is a good introduction into washed rind cheeses before moving on to more assertive ones like Munster. This cheese melts beautifully. Try it in polenta or grits.
