This cheese was first produced by monks at Abbey of Saint-Marie-du-Mont near the town of Godewaersvelde (God’s plain) in Northern France in 1890.
Mont des Cats is made from the milk of cows in the region and is a semi-soft, washed cheese which requires the same production methods as “Port du Salut.”
This is a breakfast cheese that is often eaten together with coffee by the folks in Flanders.
