French Mimolette, also called "Boule de Lille," dates back to the reign of Louis XIV, who prohibited the import of Dutch cheeses into France. The residents of Flanders had strong cultural ties to Holland and dearly loved the banished Dutch specialties. Their alternatives were to either smuggle in contraband cheeses or produce their own.
Thus, Mimolette was born. Aged Mimolette is a hard cheese that has the same texture and spherical shape as Dutch Edam, but with a natural rind. It is produced in nine pound spheres containing a bright orange interior. Because of its hue, it is sometimes called "Halloween Cheese." It tastes gloriously sweet, yet uncommonly tame for a French cheese.
Aged Mimolette, popular throughout France, is a dense cheese, hard enough to be grated. Enjoy it chunked or served with a hearty bread and fruit. Made from pasteurized cow's milk, aged for 12 months

* Price is per pound.
