The cheese is being produced at Bergues in Flandres (near Dunkirk) that is only around 7.5 miles from the Belgian border.
Bergues Tasting Notes
During the affinage and aging process, it is often washed with brine and beer which gives the cheese its sharp and distinctive flavor and its smooth, supple and elastic texture.
How to Enjoy (PAIRING)
This cheese is an easy pairing. You can grade it over pasta/soup or grilled/baked with vegetable dishes such as Ratatouille.
For alcohol pairing, do NOT pair with strong full-bodied wine as it may overwhelm the taste. Instead go with light red wine, sweet dessert wine, or chilled beer.
For a quick healthy snack, you can pair Bergues with gluten-free rice crackers (see below for recommendation).
