Description

Port Salut cheese is a traditional monastery cheese originally created in 1816 by Trappist monks at the Abbaye du Port du Salut in the Loire Valley. It was the first French cheese produced from pasteurized milk and features a velvety smooth, creamy texture. This slightly acidic semi-soft cow's milk cheese is most recognized by its edible, bright orange washed rind. The interior of Port Salut has distinctively rich, yet mild and savory flavor.
