Le Secret de Maurice
Le Secret is a small artisanal cheese with a white bloomy rind and a velvety, very runny interior. Its fresh milk flavour presents a hint of salt and bitterness. Cheesemaker Maurice Dufour holds the secret to his recipe… To eat it, remove the rind from the top and enjoy it to the heart. When young, it can be enjoyed like any other soft cheese. It may be frozen.
