De Oude Streek

New cheese speciality: Macendré

macendreNew in the “De Oude Streek” assortment is the Macendré. Cendré means in French that the product is treated with charcoal ashes and that is exactly what happened with Macendré. The cheeses are rolled through the ashes after the white blooming rind has formed. The charcoal ashes deminishe the acidity a bit,  delay the process of riping and make the cheese fuller in taste. This results in a creamy cheese with a black or greyish rind with a pleasantly earthy flavour. Macendré comes in 90 gram packaging.
