Monte Rosso is Section 28’s answer to the Italian’s Taleggio and is a gentle but seriously addictive introduction into the world of stinky cheese. Perfect for cooking or eating straight! Imagine the perfect combination of crunchy, stinky rind and soft, gooey centre, now taste it with the Monte Rosso. Grab an eye-catching wheel, we mean ‘square’ of cheese heaven. This way you might be more willing to share. Key word here is ‘might’.
Who is Section 28 Cheese?
Although we may not want to admit it, the French do bloody brilliant cheese. Kym Masters of Section 28 knew this, left his corporate life behind and flew to France. Once there, he knocked on dozens of cheesemakers' doors to ask if he could spend a couple of months working for them. Rejection after rejection until one let him in. One of France's top makers of alpine cheeses, Kym was given a rare insight into how to create a masterpiece. Now Section 28 is on the rise to be the cream of the crop.
How does it taste?
Strong earthy and yeasty aromas come from the rind, while the taste is rich yet mild, with sumptuously creamy texture and meaty notes.
