Made traditionally in Lille, the production of this cheese has spread throughout the country (Various parts, France)

Inspired by the Dutch cheese Edam, this French twist on an already inspiring classic dated back to the 17th century. Made with pasteurized cow's milk, its electric-orange paste has sweet, caramelized depth and smooth, fudgy finish. The rind's unique appearance and floral aroma is the work of tiny mites, specially evolved to cheese. So beloved and integral to this cheese, the French refer to the mites as tiny affineurs for their important role in the aging process.
