The vieux (French for “old”) in the name of this cheese might refer to a number of things...
 It could refer to the old Rule to which the Trappist monks who make this cheese adhere—a strict way of living founded by Benedict of Nursia that goes back as far as the 5th century.

Truthfully, it’s a Tarte; pastry, open-faced, filled with sweet and tart (tasting) apples, masterfully blended with almonds, cream cheese, cinnamon, and sugar. Yes, it lacks sophistication—but not like an uncouth uncle. Traits so unattractive in a relative have the...
