Yes, this is a post entirely about a single cheese. If you’re reading this, you probably already like cheese, which means you need to go out and get this one in your life immediately. It’s SO GOOD. (Btw, wasn’t paid by Waitrose for this post). I had this for lunch on my birthday last month, but it doesn’t have to be your birthday to enjoy this wonderful fromage.
Let’s start from the beginning. Epoisses is a soft, oozy French cheese, whose rind is repeatedly washed with Marc de Bourgogne. REPEATEDLY WASHED. Now, I don’t know about you, but being repeatedly washed in brandy sounds like a good time to me.
This particular Waitrose Epoisses is wonderful. It also actually has so many five star reviews on the website, it’s a cheese with a lot of love. It is salty, sticky and oozy. It smells pretty strong, and tastes even stronger. It’s almost… spicy. It has a fruitiness about it that’s really good. I can’t put into words how good this cheese is. Someone once called epoisses the King of Cheeses, and they were right.
Put it on a cracker. Spread it on bread. Eat it on toast. Serve it at a dinner party and instantly make people fall in love with you. Go change your life with this cheese.
