Stinky, france

Classically “stinky” cheese--the meaty, delicious cheeses not for the faint of heart--are typically washed rind varieties, meaning that they’re periodically washed in a brine or alcohol solution during their aging processes, so that they emerge with an assertive and delectable paste filled with savory notes of broth and cured meats, and often a custard-like consistency that makes us want to spoon them straight from the rind. France is one of our favorite destinations for these unctuous selections, so we’ve collected favorites like Epoisses and Langres for bold cheese lovers looking for the best French washed rinds.
