Bloomy Rind

White rind cheese. The white exterior is a mould growth of Penicillium Candidum that grows on the exterior of the cheese. Traditionally, eating this is a matter of preference, but I usually find that it adds both juxtaposing flavour and texture to the interior of the cheese. Typically, these are soft ripened cheeses and the mould spoors help transform the interior cheese curds from a firm to a liquefied state.
