Le Roussot is a Carré des Vosges, a soft, square-shaped cheese with the full taste that is typical of the local mountain region. It is produced with cows' milk in the French region of Lorraine and has a washed rind. The name Le Roussot actually comes from the reddish (rousse in French) colour the rind turns when the cheese is perfectly mature and ready to be eaten.
It can be eaten in any number of ways, but try it with jacket potatoes, or sliced nice and thick and placed on a slab of freshly-baked bread. It’s also perfect at the end of a meal, served with savoury biscuits.
