A full flavoured 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 good 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 individual cheese weighs approx. 800g.
