Maytag La Petite Blue is a soft, surface ripened French style cheese layered with a delicate touch of Maytag mold. It is made by hand in small batches with rich, local cow’s milk. The rind is delicate and delicious and can be enjoyed at different stages of ripeness. The paste starts out fudgy and mild; as it ages, it gets gooey and a bit more assertive in flavor. This cheese is delicious on its own with fruit, or spread it on a piece of crusty baguette for a true French breakfast!
Acclaimed by cheese experts and food editors as America's finest blue cheese, Maytag Blue Cheese ranks among the world's great cheeses.
