BAKED VACHERIN DU HAUT DOUBS SUPPER

Share

Every year we look forward to the beginning of October when we see the return of Vacherin du Haut Doubs from Richard Sancey’s dairy in Metabief.

This eastern region of France has gentle hills and pasture for the cattle to graze, and there are the spruce trees for making the bark collar to go around the cheese which is a vital ‘strap’ to hold intact the soft curds.  The season for the traditionally handmade cheese is short and ends around the middle of March.  As the months progress the billowy washed crust turns from pale peach to a deeper apricot, with the gentle earthy sappy aroma from the spruce collar.
