Emmenthal (also called Swiss Cheese) is known for its grand size and its handmade quality. The Emmenthal cheese-making process is an old tradition, using pure cow`s milk and a maturation period of at least four months. This process allows the rind to develop in an entirely natural manner, enclosing an ivory-colored, mild, slightly nutty-tasting cheese with cherry- sized holes. Emmenthal from Switzerland is a delicacy on every cheese platter, a popular dessert cheese, and is a perfect melting cheese for warm dishes.
Raclette’s balanced earthy flavor and sweetness are perfect to slather over potatoes, meat and winter root vegetables. The wheel or square can be cut in half, placed in a special Raclette holder to hold the melting cheese in place, and served in the traditional way.

This 10 month aged Gruyère is sweet but slightly salty, with a flavor that varies widely with age. It is often described as creamy and nutty when young, becoming with age more assertive, earthy, and complex. When fully aged (five months to a year) it tends to have small holes and cracks which impart a slightly grainy mouthfeel.
