Livarot is a very strong smelling cheese, but its bark is far worse than its bite. It is considered one of the world’s great table cheeses with a smooth, ripe, slightly spicy flavor. As this cheese matures and comes to room temperature, the texture oozes and becomes nearly liquid. The intensity of flavor also increases at this point, becoming beefy and yeasty. The wheel’s outer edge is encircled with strips of raffia or paper that prevent the cheese from collapsing during maturing.
