This pumpkin-orange colored is made using the same methods as Edam. It has a smooth rind and is shaped like a cannonball; it adds color and uniqueness to a cheese plate. It has a mild aroma and flavor.
Bucheron has an ivory-colored paste surrounded by a bloomy white rind. It is chalky and dense on the interior, and has a thin layer of creamy cheese just below the rind. The flavor is mildly goaty when it is young, and develops a sharper and more goaty flavor as it ages. Bucheron means “logger” in French.
With a natural rind that resembles a cantaloupe and a paste the color of a pumpkin, aged Mimolette is made using the same production methods as Dutch Edam. Its flavor is fruity yet subtle, and improves with age. The taste is slightly salty with notes of butterscotch and an aroma of hazelnut, with a brittle texture that resembles that of a very aged Gouda.
Petit Brebis (Agour) has a deeply nutty taste with a firm, crumbly texture. The rind is reddishand hard. It can be served as a robust table cheese alongside hearty red wines or used as a grating cheese to addzest to pasta dishes, minestrone or stews.
