French Mimolette, also called Boule de Lille, dates back to the reign of Louis XIV, who prohibited the import of Dutch cheeses into France. The alternatives were to either smuggle in the contraband cheeses or make a go at producing their own - with a French twist, of course! And so, Mimolette was born. Aged Mimolette is a hard cheese with a natural rind and a bright orange-colored interior. Aged for 12 months, it has a sweet, yet complex flavor.
