Passendale cheese

Passendale is one of the best known cheeses in Belgium and is a semi-soft, pasteurised, cows’ milk cheese.

The cheese resembles a loaf of bread. It has a round shape and a hard, but edible brown rind with spots of white. Inside, the flesh is golden, dotted with small holes and very creamy. It has a firm and damp consistency, slightly sweet aroma and mild flavour.

When the cheese was first produced in 1978, it was called "de Groot Hof–Grand’Ferme". For export reasons it was renamed Passendale in 1980.

There are three types of Passendale cheese:

Prelude: The standard version

Classic: Same as Prelude but the rind is brushed before the cheese is packaged.

Passendale Bel Age: Matured for 6 months in cellars and has a more distinguished taste.
