Cave Aged Swiss Gruyere
This cheese comes to us from Emmi, master cheesemakers since 1782. They buy full 200 pound of Gruyere from the farming regions in the Canton of Fribourg, then age them in underground sandstone caves in their facility near Lucerne. Made from rich, unpasteurized, Alpine cow's milk, this Grand Gruyere Reserve has been aged for at least one year, compared with the average four to six months. A rustic, somewhat oily rind gives way to firm, smooth textured cheese which is slightly aromatic with a robust, assertive flavor. Wonderful served unadorned with some dark bread and figs, this is also a great melting cheese, and one that lends itself well to gratins, fondues and soups.
Made from unpasteurized cow's milk.
