I featured this cheese in my “27th Birthday French Feast.”
Vache Maigre is a naturally low-fat raw milk cheese from France. If you’re a lover of a nutty hard cheeses with that tang of raw milk, then you’re in luck! Vache Maigre (skinny cow in French) is the cheese for you. It reminds me very much of Mimolette with a texture that is best enjoyed by nibbling with your front teeth like a rabbit. This particular cheese has a profound taste that should be eaten on its own at room temperature. Do not top with jelly’s or preserves, you’d be downplaying the cheese masters hard work!
