La Fête du Fromage - FAIL

It's Alive!

The cheese I had lined up for this week's Fête du Fromage, Chèvre Moulis, was a bit of a disappointment. (to put it mildly)

I've nicknamed this one Chèvre Moldy.

After chucking it in the garbage I read that Chèvre Moulis is only available from April to November. I guess the wheel that I bought this piece from was on its way out.

And since I don't want to waste any more Euros on another possibly rotten wedge, a proper tasting is going to have to wait until the spring.

Pin It

Dear Loulou
I did not need the closeup of the mould.

Quelle domage! I'll bet it tasted wonderful in its prime.

Loulou said...

I hope your mold (spell it the "correct way, please!) nightmares have gone away by now.

not at all! I was so bummed when I opened the paper and saw this

What's scary is how fast it grew from the time of purchase to when I went to eat it. Two days - refrigerated!

Tout à fait!

I know. What a waste. :(

I'm sure it did. I'll have to wait until next year to find out though. I never got to taste it!

Eeek! How disappointing. Did it smell awful?

It was disappointing! It smelled like mold - no cheese smell at all.
