This semi-soft, uncooked, pressed cheese is interior ripened for 4 weeks and made with pasteurized milk. Its smooth surface is covered in an orangey red edible film. The cheese is cream to pale yellow in colour and has a smooth, elastic texture. It features milk and yogurt aromas and reveals a buttery, nutty flavour that is slightly tangy. It is perfect with a pale lager or pilsner, or with a light, fruity wine.
It is available in two varieties:
M.F.: 25%, Moisture: 50%
St-Paulin Fritz Léger
M.F.: 12%, Moisture: 50%
These cheeses are available from the cheese maker, at specialty cheese shops and in some supermarkets.
