Bresse Bleu ®

Language: French

Description: A short cylinder of soft to semisoft blue cheese made with cow's milk, similar to Saingorlon and Gorgonzola. It has a smooth, creamy, ivory paste with blue veining and a thin white penicillin rind and is foil wrapped and placed in a cardboard box. Since 1950 it has been produced industrially in the Pays de L'Ain in Burgundy. This table cheese is eaten all year round, is made with pasteurised milk and contains 50% fat. The curds are uncooked and unpressed. It may be found a variety of dimensions weighing from 100-500 g (3½-18oz). Affinage is 2-4 weeks, resulting in a strong flavoured cheese.
