Coulommiers is a soft-ripened, bloomy-rinded cheese made from cow’s milk. Its size is intermediary, between that of Camembert and that of Brie. Originally from the Seine-et-Marne, the cheese is named after the town where it used to be produced.
The rind of this cheese is covered with soft white down that becomes thinner and spotted with orange as its maturation progresses. Its pale, shiny yellow paste generally has a chalky white center.
