We supply a whole Tete de Moine cheese (approx 800g) plus the classic wooden cheese curler or Girolle Machine as it is known in Switzerland.

Pass the cheese curler around the table to allow guests to “shave” themselves petals of this rich pungent cheese.

Tete de Moine is a strong, semi-firm, naturally rinded Swiss cheese that is traditionally cut on a GIROLLE machine or cheese curler, a wooden circular implement, that “shaves” the cheese into petals. This cheese is always best enjoyed in thin slivers to enjoy its complex flavours and is delicious with fresh fruits. It is also delicious melted over hot new potatoes for a tasty lunch or supper dish as you would RACLETTE cheese. The cheese is from the JURA REGION in North West Switzerland, a high mountainous area where the cattle graze on sweet grasses and herbs on alpine pastures, which gives the cheese its very distinctive sweetness, flavour and aroma.

The Tete de Moine & Girolle Set makes a great gift. 

The individual cheese weighs approx. 800g.
