The maroilles is a strong cheese you cannot eat with wine but beer, is named from the village it comes from. Its flavour is strong but its taste is delicate. Don’t take off the rind. You can use a ready-made puff pastry, or dough, so it will just take 15 mn to cook this starter. It could be a main course, serve it with a salad and a glass of beer.
