Full Shipping Details
Mimolette, also called "Boule de Lille", dates back to the reign of Louis XIV, who prohibited the import of Dutch cheeses into France. The residents of Flanders (now part of Belgium), the northernmost region of France, had strong cultural ties to Holland (many still speak Dutch as their first language today) and dearly loved the banished Dutch specialties. Their alternatives were to either smuggle in the contraband cheeses or make a go at producing their own - with a French twist, of course! And so, Mimolette was born. Aged Mimolette is a semi-hard cheese that has the same texture and spherical shape as Dutch Edam, but with a natural rind. It is produced in bowling-ball shaped 6-pound spheres with a bright orange-colored interior. Because of its hue, it is sometimes called the "Halloween Cheese." Its taste is gloriously sweet, yet uncommonly tame for such a cheese.

Aged Mimolette is very popular throughout France and is enjoyed by both the most timid cheese novice and the serious connoisseur. This variety is aged for twelve months and is quite flavorful. Slice it thin!
