This is a French cheese, made by Fromagerie Guilloteau, in the Rhône-Alps. Vacherousse d’Argental is a soft cow’s milk cheese made using ultra-filtration in cheese making. This technique removes some of the water in the milk to create a lusciously creamy texture. Vacherousse, literally meaning red cow, is a pleasant surprise. It has an orange washed rind and delicate sweetness that balances the rich, buttery and creamy intensity. It’s a sure crowd pleaser!
Pairing: fresh crusty bread, glazed pears, fresh apple, Riesling jelly.
