Food Thing


Cow’s milk; soft

Region of origin: Picardy and Nord-Pas-de-Calais

Said to be invented by a monk in the Abbey of Maroilles in the 10th century, Maroilles is an incredibly pungent cheese, though the taste is not as strong as the smells suggests; it’s mellow, earthy and nutty. This is one for those who love a good stinky cheese.

Maroilles’ AOC status means it must follow strict standards. Any Maroilles you buy must be aged for a minimum of five weeks and a maximum of four months. Other regulations ensure this cheese is always produced from cow’s milk and is always square. In addition to the shape, Maroilles is distinctive for its signature orange-red rind that bears the lines of the wire racks on which the cheese rests during the production process.

It is available in four formats (with varying ripening times): Maroilles (720g), sorbais (540g), mignon (360g) and quart (180g). Regulations also apply to location. In honor of the town of Maroilles, all Maroilles cheese must be made in the north of France, in the Picardy and Nord-Pas-de-Calais regions.

For a milder and creamier variety, try Munster from the Alsace, Lorraine and Franche-Comté region.

Movie/TV Trivia

Iron Man

Paul Bettany has never seen the film, and is unfamiliar with the plot. He said J.A.R.V.I.S. was the easiest job ever, and it was almost like a robbery, since he only worked for two hours, got paid a lot of money, then went on vacation with his wife (Jennifer Connelly).
