Epoisses de Bourgogne Cheese

One of the foods we enjoyed in Dijon was Epoisses Cheese. They cal it the stinky cheese. Anyone know of a good online source? What other cheese might be similar?

    Fromage.com is a good online source for Epoisses in the US. But as someone noted on the Florida board, what you'll find here is the pasteurized version, not the authentic A.O.C. version that you probably had in France.

    Langres is similar to Epoisses and can be mail ordered from gourmetfoodstore.com.

      You can sometimes get unpasteurized (the box will say "lait cru" -- raw milk) Epoisses in the US, but it has to be more than 60 days old, which means it can be past its peak, especially if it hasn't been handled carefully.

      I don't know what the state of affairs might be in Florida, so I can't advise about non/pasteurised.

      Similar stinky creamy cheese... L'Ami de Chambertin. Superb.

        Ideal Cheese, in Manhattan, is also a good online source. www.idealcheese.com.
