Époisses

a pwass
secret de fromage #317:
Monks made the first Epoisses. You’d make good cheese too if your boss were omnipresent.

With its strong aroma and deep orange exterior, you might expect Époisses to have a bold flavor. Instead you'll find a smooth and silky cheese with a unique, slightly salty taste. Spread on raisin bread or gingerbread, Époisses is perfect with a sweet white wine at the end of a meal.
