Limburger Cheese

Even though nose-kicking limburger got its start in the Belgium town of Limburg, we consider it a German cheese. Bavarians have been making it in great quantities since the 1800s and German immigrants brought this flavorful cheese to Wisconsin. These days, Wisconsin claims limburger as our own — literally, since we are the only state in America still producing it thanks to our pals at Chalet Cheese Cooperative in Monroe. We recommend you get to know limburger, but definitely store it in very tightly-lidded glass containers. Contain the (wonderful) stink!
