Okay, so usually mold on food is seen as bad, right? Well, not in the land of cheese it isn’t!
Moldy cheese has a bad reputation among some, and is strongly adored by others. It is actually a key component in making these types of cheeses:
- Blue cheeses: Roquefort, Gorgonzola, Stilton, etc
- Soft-ripened cheeses: Brie, Camembert, Humboldt Fog, and St. André
Personally, I don’t mind a little bit of mold on my cheese- blue cheese is a great addition to lunch salads, and the super-creamy texture of St. André is to-die-for (trust me). American-Made Cutlery has the best cheese knife out there:
