The Morbier finds its origin in the French Jura. The original farmhouse cheese owes its name to the village of the same name in the Jura where it originated. In 2000, the Morbier was awarded the AOC quality mark. This means that the cheese can only be made from cows that are fed with hay, grass and herbs from the Jura.
The cheese fascinates by the layer of black ash that is visible in the middle. This layer was created in the past because the farmers saved up the curd. A layer of soot from the boiler was applied as protection. Nowadays, this black layer in the Morbier has been replaced by a vegetable ash. This gives the cheese from the mountains its unique, fruity taste.
What is the best way to combine the Morbier? Get your raclette out! This traditional dessert cheese from the Jura really comes into its own on the raclette. Thanks to its composition and taste, this cheese is excellent for use as raclette cheese. But this cheese should also not be missing on a cheese board. Your taste buds will be optimally spoiled in combination with a good glass of red wine.
