This is normally viewed as a simple-style cheese, yet with a little love and care (affinage) it becomes a rich, strong tasting cheese with a velvety texture. The moist, nutty flavour and beautiful melting quality of the cheese also make it a perfect medium for cooking, crumbling over salads and steaks and vegetable dishes or stuffing into poultry. An extremely versatile cheese, notably simpatico on a cheeseboard. Full-bodied red wines suit, as does Champagne and sweeter dessert whites.
