Journey to Belgium – 1st cheese

So, I spent a couple of days in Brussels, I had a workshop there – and obviously, I brought a couple of thing home. The package included waffles, chocolates, macarons, mustards, hams, and cheeses.

And the first cheese turns out to be French originally. Anyway, my wife wasn’t that happy as most of the cheeses are those smelly ones, so I am told to finish them off as soon as I can. And I’m on it, ’cause I have to admit, when I open the fridge, you can feel it, really, and you can feel that immediately in the other end of the flat, too.

But so it goes – I have to get used to seeing my two-year-old with nose plugged.

So, it is a smelly one, but I like them very much and this is nowhere near to the worst ones. Once I bought something I opened at my office in the kitchen – my colleagues spent the whole day with open windows on the whole corridor. And I mean it!

And anyway, one of my friends says that you don’t smell it when you eat it, so problem solved.

And if you taste it, you will love it. It is not the richest of flavors but still, gives you the idea of eating something proper. This not the best of the cheeses, not even the front row, but a decent one. Soft but can be sliced and cut with a sharp knife, and the slices are really nice on a good slice of bread.

As you can find on the internet it is made from the cow’s milk, and Rouy is the name of the family company that produces it. They originally lived in Dijon, France, but now I think they are acquired by a subsidiary of Lactalys Besnier.

Anyway, don’t be afraid to try, you won’t be disappointed though one can be sure to be able to find something better.
