Fromage of the Day, 08.26.12: Fourme Aux Molleux

Fromage of the Day, 08.26.12:  Fourme Aux Molleux.  Sweet, peppery and creamy, this blue cheese is Fourme D’Ambert rinsed rather liberally in Vouvray.  It pairs well with your favorite Vouvray (imagine that), an Allagash White, a Templeton Rye, or a Farnum Hill Dry cider.  If it was a style of jazz, it would be hard bop, sweet and punchy.  The Joy of Cheese late summer events continue September 12 with a tasting of six cheeses and six Ommegang beers at Gastronomie 491.  Details are here,


About jmartin437

I've worked in and around the world of high end cheese for 27 years. I've been everything from a department manager who hired and fired and trained staffs to a weekend warrior who shows up ties on an apron the middle of a rush and talks to customers and cleans up the place. I enjoy it all, and I especially like my current situation conducting informal seminars about cheese at area bars and in class at the 92nd St. Y. The current schedule is always up at In addition I conduct private events that are perfect to lead off birthday parties for foodies and sommeliers and also they make great entertainment for corporate team building events and associates meetings at law firms. In addition, I've been a freelance journalist for 27 years. Currently my profiles of leading musicians and filmmakers appear in the Wall Street Journal and I also wrote about sports for the Root, and for five loooong years, which included the entirety of the Isiah Thomas Knicks era, I wrote about the NBA for the New York Sun. I enjoyed writing about basketball so much that I now do it here at rotations for free.

    Where can I find this cheese? I used to be able to get it at Wegmans in Hunt Valley MD. They are no longer carrying it. If you know of any place that still sells it please let me know. Years ago, Wegmans used to sell a fourme au sauterne which was also terrific that was from Belgium. You can’t get that one again either.

      I asked the distributor and she gave me the following outlets. You can find Fourme au Moelleux at Dean&Deluca Soho, Lucy’s Whey Carnegie Hill, Westside Market Chelsea and Astoria Bier&Cheese in Astoria (Broadway). And sometimes at Campbell Cheese in Brooklyn.
      I suspect that Campbell and Lucy’s Whey would be especially amenable to shipping you some.
