Bleu de Bresse cheese
Bleu de Bresse cheese is a soft, pasteurised, cows' milk cheese from Bresse in Burgundy. It has a bloomy, edible rind and is available in three sizes: 2 kg wheels, 1.5 kg cylinders and 250 g madallions. Production did not begin until 1950, with the aim of producing a milder alternative to other blue cheeses.
The cheese has an off-white fuzzy crust and its bulging interior is creamy white with biue veins. It is butter and the flavour is not dissimilar to that of Brie. However, the best alternative to Bleu de Bresse is Gorgonzola cheese.
Bleu de Bresse can be obtained on line from FrenchClick.
