‘Mimolette’ derives from the French word "molle", which means soft.
Known as the "Boule de Lille" after the city of origin and vieux Hollande. It is a semi-hard cow’s milk cheese similar to Edam. The aging time varies from 2 months to 24 months.
Along with its orange colour, the cheese has a fruity aroma. Being a good choice for non-vegetarians, it tastes a bit buttery, salty and nutty with 40% fats.
It can be added to salads, omelets and other cooked dishes. It pairs well with Strong Beer, Banyuls, Merlot and Sherry.
