Product Description

Vacherin Fribourgeois is a hearty and potent Swiss cow's milk cheese with a semi-soft to firm texture, depending on age. Selected by master affineur Rolf Beeler, Vacherin Fribourgeois is an "old fashioned" Vacherin with an uneven, craggly rind and harsh edges. Its taste is grassy, nutty, and with the perfume of fresh-cut hay. The flavors increase when melted, and, as such, Vacherin Fribourgeois

  1. Vacherin 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th May 2017

    Vacherin comes in two styles both having at one time been contaminated with an organism called Listeria. after years of non-production ,the damage was eliminated and production resumed of this very fine cheese. The other Vacherin is sold under the name of Mont D'Or and is a more pungent and semi-liquid cheese that I find irresistible, well, both in fact. This shipment came sealed in plastic and was fresh to cut and eat. It is not cheap, but worth every penny. I recommend it highly-make sure you do not eat it at refrigerated temperature. BTW,the classic Swiss fondue does not contain either Vacherin or Appenzeller, but there's no law against doing so, if you like it. Don't forget the Kirsch !


  2. Makes for a Delicious Fondue 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Nov 2016

    A friend just got back from Switzerland and said that she wanted to make a fondue like she just had there, only problem was that it used a different swiss cheese called Vacherin. We found it at Swiss Favorites and ordered. The 'jury was out' when i took a sample bite, but when melted in the fondue, it was spectacular! I was so happy to have a small piece left over that i could use in a mac & cheese as it added a ton of great flavor and bonded with the mac just fine.
