A cow's milk cheese, traditionally made in northern France, which has a cream-colored soft to firm texture surrounded by a thick orange, washed rind. The texture of this cheese may appear somewhat elastic as it becomes firmer. It is a cheese that requires proper aging in order to achieve a peak flavor and consistency. If not allowed to age properly, it will be too soft and lack a distinctive aroma with a mild fruity flavor. It can be served on rough breads, with crackers or as a complement to sauce spreads, such as chutney when added to other foods. It melts well and provides a nuttier flavor when melted over foods or crackers.
