|The most famous cheese in the north of France, Maroilles was invented by monks in 962CE. Regular turning and washing eliminates the natural white mould and promotes the development of the bacteria that gives the rind its distinctive orange-red colour.|
|Weight and Shape:||800g, square|
Maroilles’ paste is golden-yellow, soft, and oily, and it has a strong flavour and aroma with a sweet, lingering aftertaste.
How to enjoy:
A local favourite involves using Maroilles in a sauce for chicken dishes. Eat it alongside all very strong, vigorous red wines, such as Chateauneuf-Pape.
Eric’s Recommendation: Ideal with a strong beer, or a heavy full-bodied red wine. Mixing with salty food can improve the taste.
