Bloomy Rind Cheeses

Rivers Edge Chèvre's bloomy rind cheese is a true surface-ripened cheese, like those produced in the French countryside. "Surface-ripened" means the surface mold grows and affects the interior of the cheese. When young, the cheese is smooth and dense; as it ages, it becomes creamy, and at peak ripeness the interior will have the consistency of cream, and be full-flavored, but with no ammonia aroma. Much of the bloomy rind cheese in the U.S. is being made with Geotricum as the "surface mold." Geotricum does not affect the interior of the cheese. The Geotricum cheeses dry out and get a flinty texture, and have a completely different texture and flavor than our cheese. When the cheese is fully aged, cut the top off the cheese, rather than slicing into it, and use the rind as a ready-made bowl to contain the fully developed cheese inside.
