Vacherin Mont D'Or?
« on: February 18, 2011, 08:28:50 AM »
My tommes are aging nicely, and I really have no more room in my cave for a big wheel; so want to try my hand at a favorite style, Mont D'Or, particularly after trying some of Uplands's Rush Creek Reserve.

I've gotten some idea from, say, French Cheese; but nothing definitive enough for me to go on.  Anyone make this? Francois?  Recipe, as a starting point?

Did you ever find a recipe?  I'm also interested in trying to make this cheese.

It's just camambert with a washed rind.

You guys are starting to really make me miss cheesemaking!  What did Pacino say in Godfather III? "Everytime I think I'm out, they just start pulling me back in...!" ;D
