Details

Another great Vacherin style cheese from Franche-Comte, more specifically produced near the Jura mountain range in Haut-Jura. Cremoulin, a relatively new Vacherin, was created to be the closest thing available to the one true Vacherin, and probably the finest, Vacherin Haute-Rive (very rarely available). When a Vacherin is ripe (preferable), like Cremoulin, you'll notice a thick reddish-brown rind that appears to have a rippled wave effect, when eaten it is runny, oozy, and meant to be eaten with a spoon. Like all great Vacherin, wheels are small (about 4-5 in. diameter) and wrapped in a spruce bark to hold the form together. Cremoulin is highly produced so this cheese comes in a cardboard box to mimic the effect, but nonetheless, the cheese will be the closest thing available to a fermier example of Vacherin: runny, smelly, bitey, woodsy and just plain heavenly! Serve with the sweetest fruit available and don't be afraid to serve this Vacherin by itself on a plate and with some berries and a spoon!
