Epoisses Berthaut cheese portrait painting by Mike Geno
*Part of the "KINGS OF CHEESES" series*

Epoisses cheese originated as early as the XVIth century in a religious community of monks in the small village of Époisses. Two centuries later, when the monks left the village, the recipe was handed over to the peasants in the valley. As Epoisses risked nearly being completely lost during and after the wars, Robert and Simone Berthaut collected all living knowledge available and revived a classic kink of cheese.
