• Tete De Moine

  • Kilo

A semi-hard aromatic Swiss Cheese with a slight taste of rind and hay.

On the mountain pastures of the Swiss Jura, from spring to autumn, the cows enjoy a particular composition of aromatic grasses and herbs, as well as fragrant hay in winter. These give the Tête de Moine AOP its unmistakeable character, marked by its natural environment, and its incomparable flavour. It is in this region, in the monastery of Bellelay that this cheese was created 800 years ago. 

The Tête de Moine AOP is not traditionally cut, but twisted into fine rosettes with a paring device such as a Girolle® or Pirouette®. The paring of the cheese not only modifies the structure of the body but also facilitates the full development of the flavour and enhanced enjoyment of the Tête de Moine AOP. In the refrigerator – kept under cover – the cheese retains its moisture. It thus maintains its full flavour and remains ready for paring at all times. The twisting of the rosettes works best when the cheese is taken directly from the refrigerator.

Connoisseurs appreciate this natural product as the highlight of the cheese plate, as an aperitif, as a dessert or a snack. 

This product is a pre-order item. The earliest availability is 26/04/24.
