passendale -

Passendale is a Belgian cheese made with pasteurized cow's milk. This cheese comes from the Flanders area and is named by the village of Passchendaele. The size and shape of the Passendale cheese have a resemblance to the local bread. The weight of this cheese is about 3 pounds and the skin is dark yellow and filled with white mushrooms.

The inside of the cheese is yellow and hollow. This cheese is suitable to eat with bread or baked with vegetables such as asparagus and broccoli. Passendale cheese is produced by acidating cow's milk using rennet.

After that, the curd is cut into pieces and then salt is added to the curd. The cheese was matured for 45 days in the humid air. Passendale was first made by Romain Donck and his wife Germaine Spruytte in 1932.
