Browse our great selection of Gourmet Washed Rind Cheeses. Washed rind cheeses are typically bathed or washed with salted water, wine, brandy or local spirits. The washing or bathing helps to break down the curd from the outside. The washing process also helps cheeses to retain moisture, and develop a powerful flavor. The cheese becomes soft and thick and the rind becomes part of the cheese. The color changes to reddish or yellowish. These pungent, stinky cheeses often have a smooth and creamy interior. Try them and let us know what you think by giving us your opinion in a product review.
