Food Thing

Boulette d’Avesnes

Cow’s milk; semi-soft

Region of origin: Avesnes

Boulette d’Avesnes is a hand-molded and distinctly flavored conical-shaped cheese produced in Avesnes in the north of France. Its pungent aroma and taste are a result of its flavoring of parsely, tarragon, crushed peppercorns and cloves.

Boulette d’Avesnes was originally produced from buttermilk (the milk remaining after the manufacture of butter) but today is made using Maroilles paste. Most boulettes (cones) are sold fresh and are supposed to be eaten within 30 days. However, they can age quite well in ripening cellars where the rind is reddened either by adding annatto (a natural food coloring) or paprika.

Stinky and deliciously creamy and fresh, this cheese is best consumed with a good beer or traditional gin.

Movie/TV Trivia

Candyman

The bees were bred specifically for this movie. They needed to make sure that the bees were only twelve hours old, so that they looked like mature bees, but their stinger wouldn't be powerful enough to do any real damage.
