French cheese Livarot
Livarot is one of the oldest cheeses in Normandy and takes its name from the town of Livarot, in the heart of the Pays d'Auge. It is a soft dough with rind washed with whole cow's milk. He is also nicknamed "the Colonel" because it is surrounded by a strip of natural reed called "laïche", 5 times around the cheese as the 5 gallons of the rank of Colonel. Originally it prevented the cheese from sagging during ripening. Nice orange surface, moist and sticky. Brown strips of natural reed surround him. The ivory paste is smooth, shiny and homogeneous.
The Livarot has a rather typical smell of farm on the crust but its dough is softer with aromas of hot milk. its texture is supple and soft and its crust is sandy. It is a cheese of character with the taste which becomes powerful while being refined.
