Exploring the World of Stinky Cheeses: A Whiff of Adventure!

Have you heard of stinky cheeses? Yes, those smelly ones your grandparents might have eaten. Don’t wrinkle your nose just yet – these cheeses might surprise you with their amazing flavors and textures. Let’s dive into the fascinating world of stinky cheeses and discover what makes them special.
First things first, why do they smell so much? The secret is bacteria – not the bad kind, though! One type of bacteria, b. linens is responsible for the smell. It’s the same bacteria that makes your sweat smell! But in cheese, it’s intentional and adds a unique aroma. The bacteria come from washing the cheese’s rind in salty brine or alcohol. That’s what gives these cheeses their special funkiness.

Now, let’s meet some of these cheesy champions:

Epoisses: This cheese is like the rockstar of stinkiness! People say it was banned from trains because of its strong smell. It’s soft and gooey when ripe, and it’s washed with brandy. Try it with sweet apricot jam for a taste explosion!

Ardrahan: Imagine the salty air from the sea turning into cheese. That’s Ardrahan for you! Made in Ireland, it has a sticky orange rind and comes in different flavors – from slightly tangy to nutty.

Affine au Chablis: This cheese is like Epoisses’ calm cousin. It’s washed in wine and has a bit of smell. Not too strong, though! Spread it on toast with jam for a morning treat.

Rush Creek Reserve: This cheese is wrapped in bark – like a cheesy present! It’s creamy and best enjoyed by spooning it out. The cheese maker in Wisconsin came up with the idea to use winter milk.

Taleggio: Italy brings us Taleggio, a cheese that’s not super stinky, but super tasty! It has a yeasty flavor and can be used in many ways – on sandwiches or even on pizzas.

Cowgirl Creamery Red Hawk: All the way from California, this cheese is like a flavor adventure. It’s creamy and gooey, and it gets better as it ages. Just like a good story!
