This soft cheese is matured in a box and wrapped in a band of spruce wood and regularly hand washed in brine. Originating from deep in the valleys of the Swiss Jura, this cheese was originally made as a special Christmas gift from the Cheese-Maker to his family and friends and has become a popular seasonal cheese to enjoy during the colder months. The wooden band contains this soft, runny cheese, at the same time imparting a unique resin flavour into its interior. This cheese will gradually gain pungency and develop a full-bodied, aromatic flavour with smoky undertones. If preferred, the cheese can be enjoyed oven baked and eaten “fondue-style” with crusty bread.
