Stinky Cheese

Stinky cheeses are either loved or hated for their pervasive aroma and singular taste. Though many are put off at first by the odor, they eventually fall in love with these cheeses for their taste. Often boasting bright orange or stark white rinds, stinky cheeses are not only some of the most delicious but also some of the prettiest cheeses available. Ranging in flavor from rather mild to intense, stinky cheese is surprisingly versatile. Explore our fantastic range of flavors and textures of these delicious yet divisive cheeses below!

The unmistakable pungent flavors and aromas of a true stinky cheese make it the darling of the cheese gourmand. Not for the faint of heart, stinky cheese boasts powerful savors and a rich tang that goes well with off-dry white wines and ripe fruity reds. While many kinds of cheese would be considered “stinky” most true stinky cheeses fall into the “wash-rind” category. Put simply, these are cheeses that ripen from the outside in, rather than the inside out. As the cheeses mature, they are frequently washed in a brine that helps promote the growth of good bacteria and inhibit mold growth. These bacteria are responsible for the beautiful pinkish-orange color that develops on many stinky kinds of cheese. Along with those pretty colors, the bacteria are also responsible for a lot of the aromas we associate with stinky cheese. That’s why most of these cheeses are actually milder than their smell would indicate. Once tasted, stinky cheese is often characterized as being somewhat mild with mushroomy, fruity, grassy, or nutty notes. If you’re new to the world of stinky cheeses and you’re looking for something on the milder side, look no further than the delicious Taleggio. A member of the famous Italian Stracchino cheeses, Taleggio has a strong aroma but a pleasant nutty flavor and a soft creamy consistency. If you already know you love stinky cheese and you want even more of that wonderful funk, try the famous French Livarot. With its orange rind and creamy white interior, Livarot has been nicknamed “the Colonel” because of the strips of paper adorning each wheel reminiscent of the stripes a colonel would wear. Pungent and delicious this is a true stinky favorite. Mild or sharp, we have a wide selection of cheeses to suit every palate and preference!
