Delice des Cabottes (Deliss-day-Cabot) is made from whole milk with added crème fraîche in Burgundy. It can be served at many different ages, when young the texture is dense, the rind is mild and the flavour has a pleasant crème fraîche tang. As it matures, the rind blooms and becomes spicy, and the texture is like a rich, buttery mousse. For an indulgent breakfast, try Delice des Cabottes smeared on dense fruit bread, served with strawberries and Champagne.
