This small bloomy rind cheese is modeled after a “crottin” when eaten young or more like a mini-brie when it is more aged. A crottin is a French bloomy rind cheese with a thin mushroomy rind and firm, tangy paste. This cheese pairs well with jams, honey, fresh fruits or pickled veggies. Also pairs well with crisp dry white wines, lighter ales or bubbly wines.
