History
Today, the origin of Mont d’Or is still a mystery. If the manufacturing process dates back to the end of the Middle Ages, the first written records date back to the 18th Century. They were found in 1764 in a letter from Jean-Jacques Rousseau in Yvernois and then in 1799 in a letter addressed to Parmentier. One thing is certain; it regularly appeared in the Louis XV table.
The appearance of Mont d’Or, such as other cheeses creations from Franche-Comté, coincides with the first clearings of high plateaus of the Doubs. Produced under the auspices of the great abbeys, that landscape shaping will become the mold of some great cheeses.

Fabrication
Seven liters of milk are needed to make 1kg of cheese. That soft rind-washed cheese is very runny, especially at the end of maturing.
