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.

Our Featured Gourmet Washed Rind Cheese
Rougette is a German washed rind cheese with a buttery consistency; a decadent triple-cream soft-ripened cheese. This gourmet cheese has a distinct orange tint on the outer edge, a white Camembert mold on top and a taste of its own, which gives it an unusual and interesting appearance.
Like any other cheese, it is best eaten at room temperature; it is easy to spread and pairs well with fruits and nuts. Rougette is a perfect cheese to melt, like on a steak or a slice of bread and with regard to wine, try it with medium to full-bodied varieties.
We cut and wrap this cheese in wedges of 8 ounces and 1 pound. read more...
