Tete de Moine (literally Monk’s Head) is a cylindrical cheese with a smear rind and is semi-hard. This cheese is not cut but shaved with a girolle into rosette shaped slices. These are best produced when the cheeses come straight from refrigeration. Tete de Moine can be enjoyed with an apertif, as dessert cheese, or just a snack.
