Mimolette is a cheese originally made in the north of France, and is often referred to as Boule de Lille, named after Lille, a city close to Belgium and Holland, where similarly rounded cheeses are made. Due to restriction against importing cheese during the France-Dutch war in 1675 by the finance minister of Louis the XIV, this French version of their cheese was born. Orange coloring was added to distinguish it from its Dutch cousins, by seasoning with annatto.
