Once upon a time this cheese was made exclusively in monasteries. Today the cheese is produced in Bretagne and Maine under the artisan and industrial methods. It is a perfect introduction to the French traditional cheese. Do not forget to cut off the rind, as it is artificial. Cousin to the Port-Salut, this farmer cheese has a smooth, supple pate and a salty taste. The rind is thin pale yellow/orange in colouring.
