This past weekend I attended the Star Chef Congress in NYC, while I was at the show I stumbled across a both from CDA inc based out of Noyan. They were featuring cheese created by Fritz Kaiser. Unbelievable stuff. They had a cheese called Le Douanier, a semi soft cheese with a wased rind. It is ripened for 9 weeks and a line of vegetable ash running through it. It has great earty aroma and the taste has hints of nuts and green apples. If you ever get a chance to try this I highly recomend it.
