Maribo is a traditional, Danish creamery, semi-hard cheese made from pasteurised cow's milk. It is named after the town of Maribo on the island of Lolland. The round or block shaped cheese is in some ways similar to Gouda. It has a firm, pale yellow, dry interior with a creamy texture and many small, irregular holes. The cheese is coated in yellow wax and is sometimes flavoured with caraway seeds. Maribo ripens in four months to produce a tangy, strong taste and has a fat content of between 30 - 45%.
