- Cheese Notes: Port Salut, a mild, semi-soft cow’s milk cheese with a distinctive orange rind, was first produced in the 1800’s in Brittany by French Trappist monks. In 1959, the monks sold the distribution rights to a major French creamery and Port Salut is now widely available in American supermarkets and specialty stores. The orange rind should be removed before grating the cheese for fondue; to do this, peel off what you can with your fingers, then scrape off what remains with the back of a paring knife.
