Délice de Bourgogne

I purchased a piece (not a round) last Wednesday, June 19th at Costco, and I did unwrap it from the plastic and return it to the refrigerator for a few days. Mine also was dated "best by July 5th. When I cut into it on Sunday after having let is sit at room temp for several hours, it was clearly under-ripe. I suggest that you follow Ruth Lafler's advice about rewrapping and perhaps wait closer to the "best by" date. Ripe DdB almost flows like thick honey with a taste so rich and buttery that it is unforgettable. Hence the great disappointment with underripe ones.

I GIVE UP! This week I purchased DdB again from Costco. Yes, I should have known better, but I could not resist temptation. Terrible. I followed instructions and unwrapped the cheese from the plastic and stored for several days in the 'fridge. Oh well, if one can find a ripe piece, it is divine, otherwise, forget it.

The current DdB by Lincet that Costco carries is about 3 inches tall, but the one I loved that they previously carried was about 5 inches tall...a really huge hunk o'cheese and so runny. That taller version is the one I would love to find again.

Costco used to carry the MOST wonderful Delice, but now they changed to an inferior product, and it is not worth buying. I will try Trader Joe's to see if I can find the really tall Delice that ran like butter.
