Époisses is a famous and highly regarded French cheese known for its strong aroma, creamy texture, and robust flavor. It hails from the Burgundy region in France and is produced in the small village of Époisses.
- Milk Type: Époisses is typically made from cow's milk, often sourced from the local region.
- Country: France, specifically from the Burgundy region.
- Production: The cheese is made using pasteurized or raw cow's milk. After the initial cheesemaking process, it is washed with a mixture of brine and Marc de Bourgogne (a local brandy). This washing process contributes to the cheese's distinct aroma and flavor. The cheese is then aged for several weeks to a few months.
- Texture and Flavor: Époisses is known for its smooth and creamy interior with a washed rind that becomes orange-red in color. The rind is edible but can have a pungent aroma. The cheese itself has a strong, robust, and savory flavor with hints of earthiness and mushroom. It's known for being soft and gooey at room temperature, making it perfect for spreading on bread or crackers.
- Aroma: Époisses is famous for its strong and pungent aroma, often described as "stinky" or "smelly." The aroma can be quite intense, which some cheese enthusiasts appreciate.
Époisses is typically served as part of a cheese platter. It pairs well with crusty bread, crackers, or fresh fruit like pears and apples. It's also an excellent addition to salads and is sometimes used in cooking to add a rich and complex flavor to dishes.
