Remedou is a Belgian cheese made from cow's milk. The name 'Remedou' comes from the Wallon word 'remoud', meaning rich milk. This cheese is made from milk derived 15 minutes after the routine milking. The cheese is aged for a long period and has a brownish orange rind. The presence of bacteria in the cheese gives it a very strong smell, earning it the name of 'stinking cheese'.
