We tried the smallest thinnest Chaource tonight.
It had a lot of attitude. Creamy center, a little chew to the rind. Nice fragrance. Sharper than I expected and just a tiny runny which suggests to me that I let it age too long. The local cheese shop is going to try to get in some Chaource so I have something to compare it to.
It reminded me of when a friend and I would buy ‘stinky cheeses’ and enjoy them with walnuts and port. Mmmm.
I liked how creamy white the interior was, and the rich smear it left on the knife when I cut it open.
We enjoyed a thin slice smeared across a bit of Fire Island Bakery baguette.
