Tete de Moine AOP - Whole Wheel
The literal translation of the French words Tete de Moine is "Monk Head". Although this fine Swiss cheese was first created by monks, it is now produced by the lay community. Tete de Moine, made in the Swiss Alps near Bellelay from rich, unpasteurized cows' milk, is a sharp cheese with a full, nutty flavor. Its intense flavor is even more pronounced when compared to other cheeses from Switzerland, like Gruyere and Emmental. A true specialty item, Tete de Moine deserves to be regarded as one of the world's great cheeses.
  • Made from raw cow's milk. Aged over 60 days. Girolle is sold separately.
