Saulnois a salty, savory French treat – SFGate

Janet’s latest review is up- this time from France:


“As if to remind me that I’ll never taste every cheese France has to offer, along comes another I had never heard of.

Saulnois is the pride of a small creamery in the region of Lorraine, in northeast France, an area that stakes its gastronomic fame largely on quiche lorraine and plum brandy. The Mirabelle plum, a small golden fruit about the size of a large cherry tomato, can be eaten fresh or made into jam, but brandy is its highest and best use.

Wheels of Saulnois are washed with this brandy, although it appears that they don’t get too many baths because the rind isn’t particularly damp, nor does it show the reddish bacterial bloom typical of washed-rind cheeses.

In texture and aroma, this cow’s milk wheel is closer to alpine cheeses such as Comte and Tomme de Savoie than to the well-known French washed-rind cheeses such as Epoisses and Munster.”

Salutation Recipes

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
