If you go gaga for double-cream Brie but adore the pungency of washed-rind cheeses, Belletoile Rouge from La Fromagerie Henri Hutin is the cheese for you. Translating to “beautiful red star,” this wheel makes a stunning centerpiece on any cheese plate. Its complex, funky, and slightly boozy orange-pink rind finds a perfect counterpoint in a mild, creamy interior. Wash it down with red Côtes de Toul, a wine made from grapes grown near the creamery.
Available at various locations.
