Abbaye Sainte Mere is cheese from the Normandy area in France; the Normandy coast has rich pastures fed by the Atlantic sea breeze. This gourmet cheese is a classic soft cheese washed with Trappist beer. The washing and maturing creates an aroma and a sticky rind, but also influences the flavor of the cheese, which is creamy, sweet, slightly salty and flavorful.

Each time you receive a washed rind cheese, or any stinky cheese for that matter, allow the cheese to breathe a little, before you serve it, this disperses the aroma and makes the cheese more approachable. Many stinky cheeses have a wonderful flavor, you just need to try it.


Ingredients: Microfiltered cow's milk, salt, lactic starters, rennet, annotto
