How a New French Cheese Was Accidentally Created During Lockdown

A French cheese making family has created a new kind of cheese after accidentally leaving some rinds in the fridge during lockdown.

The Vaxelaire family breed a herd of 25 cows in the Vosges region in eastern France, near the German border. They usually turn all of the milk that the cows produce into cheese and during the lockdown, between March 16 and May 11, as sales fell by more than 80%, they was forced to put some of the cheese in the cellar. They then promptly forgot about them.

As reported in Le Parisien, these farmers in Saulxures-sur-Moselotte usually make munster cheese. Munster cheese dates from the 7th century when monks in the region started to make the cheese as a way of storing milk at the monastery.
