Munster

The Stinking Beauty

Munster, or the "The Stinking Beauty" as the English call it, is made in Alsace from the milk of Vosgienne cows. The cows eat a variety of mountain herbs, such as blueberries and red fescue, which contributes so the cheese’s unique flavour. Another flavour dimension comes from washing the cheese in a Gewurztraminer-enriched brine as it matures. Don’t be put off by the smell, as the taste and creamy texture are sublime.
