Petit Munster Cheese is a soft and creamy cheese with a shiny brick red rind, made from milk produced by cows living in the regions between Alsace, Lorraine and Franche-Comté in France.
As most of washed rind cheeses, Munster has a red coating on the rind that is slightly humid due to repeated washings, responsible for a strong, penetrating aroma and tangy taste.
This cheese has a very high fat content of 45-50%. Gewurztraminer or full-bodied red wines nicely complement Munster. Good to be eaten with potatoes, salad and finely chopped onions.
