Our #MongersChoice this month is Morbier as chosen by cheesemonger John.
John captures the true essence of this French stinker in the following poem.
Morbier, Morbier, a soft and stinky cheese.
First bite, a rush of nuttiness and fruit.
An ash line like the wine-dark sea suggests a vastness only known to people who have had a cheese like this. Do not be fooled.
