Medallion is a soft, mould-ripened cow's milk cheese made by Allison Lakin of Lakin's Gorges Cheese, Rockport, Maine. It is a small disc shape cheese inspired by French cheeses such as Cabecou. The cheese is sold by the whole wheel weighing 3 ounces.
Medallion has a delicate, thin, white bloomy rind with a rich and velvety paste. It is aged for approximately two weeks before being sold in the market. The cheese tastes of fresh mushroom and a lovely creaminess. Serve it alongside a fruit tart and a Pinot Noir.
