    Definitely love this cheese, particularly when it's runny and needs to be scooped into a container! Perfect with crusty bread and saucisson.

    Rich and flavoursome. After this supermarket soft cheese will be very bland. This has the soft sumptuousness of say brie but with the flavour of more stinky sharp cheeses
