Once made exclusively in monasteries. Today the cheese is produced in Bretagne and Maine under the artisan and industrial methods. It is a perfect introduction to the French traditional cheese. Do not forget to put out the rind. Cousin to the Port-Salut, this farmer cheese has a smooth pâte and a salty taste. The rind is thin and humid, the pâte supple and pale yellow.
