Mimolette (Boule de Lille)
The name 'Mimolette' is derived from the French word mi-mou, meaning "semi-soft." In France, it is famous as Boule de Lille after the city of origin or Vieux Hollande because it was originally inspired by the Dutch Edam cheese. It is a semi-hard cow's milk cheese that can be aged from 2 months two 24 months.
Mimolette has a spherical shape, and its bright orange colour comes from the annatto. It is a good choice for non-vegetarians, and it has a bitter-sweet taste.
