A Swedish cheese maker, Sven Fenelius invented Ridder cheese. It got so popular that cheese is imitated all over the world.  Made of cow’s milk, this semi-soft Norwegian cheese has a creamy pliable texture and a washed, orange, sticky rind. In almost 3 months, it maturates with mild to medium strength.

Because of its washed rind, the cheese smells a bit if stored in plastic. It's buttery sweet, slightly nutty flavour is quite refreshing. With animal rennet and 40% fat, it is suitable for non-vegetarians. Ridder is paired with a light, fruity wine. The cheese is available in flat wheels.
