Day 629 : A bright orange cheese for Halloween

Looking for a bright orange cheese for Halloween and not in the mood for an orange cheddar? Then you should look to the French aged cow's milk cheese Mimolette of course! Hailing from Lille, this round crater like cheese has a bumpy uneven greyish exterior, due primarily to the mites introduced to the cheese during its aging process. Waxy and crumbly on the interior with nutty, butterscotchy, and caramelly notes, it has that classic aged cheese crystallization. Rich and round with a rustic meatiness to it, this is a cheese that has a nice weight to it. Perfect with a glass of Calvados for a boozy cheesy Halloween treat.
