  1. I've never heard of this type of cheese. Is it made with the mushrooms?

    Could you possibly mean murol, the semi-hard, washed rind from central France?

    I don't know that you'd be able to find that exact cheese anywhere in Seattle, but you might try PCC, or DeLaurenti. I know that Beecher's Hand Made Cheese does not carry that particular cheese (all their cheeses are produced domestically), but you might be able to find something similar. The closest that I can think of that Beecher's carries would be the Tumalo Tomme, from Juniper Grove Farm in Oregon. It's probably going to be a bit more pungent than murol and perhaps more firm, but an excellent cheese and definitely worth trying, regardless of how it compares to what you're looking for.

    1. The Cheese Cellar in the Fisher Plaza also has a great selection. They might be able to help you find what you are looking for.
