Rich Rogers Unlocks the Secrets of Washed Rind Cheeses
A Q&A with Scardello Artisan Cheese owner Rich Rogers on making and enjoying washed rind cheeses, which are one of this cheesemonger's favorite varieties.
Entree Dallas: What exactly does it mean when a cheese has a washed rind?
Rogers: It’s a treatment that’s done after the cheese is made. And it is what it says it is; it’s literally washing or rubbing the rind, typically with a brine solution that sometimes has a form of diluted alcohol added.
