“The word Munster comes from monasterium”. It was coined in the seventh century by Benedictine monks who used this cheese to pay the rent on their pastures. The transaction took place in the town of Gérardmer, or “Géromé” in the local Lorraine dialect. The hearty and characteristic fragrance of our Géromé Munster, together with its orange-flavoured thin rind and ivory-coloured soft flesh make it instantly recognisable. This is a must-have for any cheese platter and can be appreciated on its own or with a dash of cumin. You can also try it with your quiches and soufflé crêpes”.
