Maroilles Fermier – half piece 360g


Square and made of cow’s milk, Maroilles is the most famous cheese from northern France. It’s a lovely golden colour, with a rich,oily soft texture and meaty, salty, lemony taste. Its nickname is ‘vieux paunt’  –  old stinker – which gives you some idea of the aroma. If you looked up “French cheese” in the dictionary, there’d be a picture of Maroilles. It’s everything quintessential about fromage: the sticky, orange rind; the pudgy, cream-colored paste; the funky, slightly fermented aroma; and the fantastic umami flavor of mushroom and lemon. This is, indeed, quite a prototypical cheese, down to its origin myth of being developed a thousand years ago by a monk in northern France. Another cheese invented by those versatile monks, Maroilles was the favourite of many French kings. Today it appears in all kinds of dishes like eggs en cocotte and the classic Tarte au Maroilles, a doughy cheesey delight worth tracking down next time you hop on the Eurostar to Lille.Maroilles is a cheese’s cheese, the kind that is respected by any good turophile (gourmet/connoisseur of cheese).

Price is by half cheese (about 360g)
