This block of Maroilles Ducornet has been produced in the traditional way—by the Leduc family, for three generations on their small dairy in northern France. ⠀
Made from pasteurized cows milk, this washed-rind cheese is turned regularly during ripening. It's also rinsed in a bath of brine and then brushed for four months. This process results in a sticky, pungent red rind that envelopes a supple and fudgy paste. At times salty, and other times sweet. ⠀
Maroilles is an iconic cheese with wonderful umami complexity. Perfect for after-dinner, pair a slice of this cheese with a brown ale or your favourite French cider.
