La Fromagerie's Mimolette
Produced around the town of Lille, in the Flanders area of Pas-de-Calais, northern France, Mimolette is an aged, raw cow's milk cheese. The appearance and floral aroma of the rind is the work of tiny mites, specially evolved to cheese. It normally weighs about 2 kg (approximately 4.5 pounds) and is made from cow's milk. The orange color comes from the natural seasoning, annatto, which has a sweet and nutty flavor.
