Also known as Boule de Lille, the favourite cheese of French President Charles de Gaulle is easily recognizable by its moon shape and flashy orange paste colour. It was firstly made upon a request of Louis XIV who was looking for a native French product to replace the very popular Dutch Edam. To differentiate it, Mimolette started to be coloured with some carrot juice and later with annatto powder.
Mimolette has a mild and supple texture. Following several months of aging in the cellar, this mimolette cheese undergoes a transformation, gradually revealing its distinctive attributes: individual flavour mature, while the rind adopts an appealing, weathered gray-orange texture.
Store in the fridge, wrapped in cheese paper, and consume within two weeks.
