    The reason why they can't get the correct texture is because unfortunately, what Nikki got in hand leaving the shop is definitely not the right kind of Tomme d'Auvergne intended to prepare the Aligot.
    Aligot is made with FRESH Tomme (in fact the same cheese, but at an earlier stage of transformation, so before it's ripened). Fresh tomme has no crust, a more buttery/creamier texture and a also totally different taste (a bit sourer, more dairy, and mush less mushroomy than the matured Tomme). And... its also not stinky at all ;)
    Basically the same difference than between cottage cheese (fresh version of cow milk cheese) vs camembert (matured version of the same).
    The fresh Tomme is what gives Aligot its specific texture and taste, without the need of adding any cream or other ingredient or, like you did, adding more and more matured cheese to get only a tiny bit of the stretching effect.
    I tried once to make aligot with matured Tomme (couln't find the fresh version) and well, it's quite good (I understand the team made a success) but it's definitely far far below the "real" one with fresh Tomme.
    Pics of fresh tomme here : (at a dairyer)
    or here :
    vs pics of matured Tomme :
    Hope this will help if you want to try this really fancy dish :)
    (oh, and also : it needs more garlic than the single crushed clove Nikki added ! The garlic at least 6 or 7 cloves should cook with the potatoes leaving the cloves intact, then mashed when mashing the potaoes)
    Hope I'm clear, as you can doubt it, english is not my mother tongue.

    Good recipe but not exactly the right cheese: you used an old Tomme d'Auvergne, aligot is made with a fresh one (it doesn't smell and it makes the aligot more elastic) 😊

    American smelling French cheese is my favorite thing to watch, this one is nowhere near the really hardcore ones, and you payed 150$ FOR IT ? You guys should come over in France, it's cheaper AND smells even worse eheh !

    If they added mozarella it might just be elastic like in the featured video...

    Why didn’t they ask Alex if their aligot was good? She said her mom made it for her all the time.
