Description

Made in a small town in Switzerland, just west of Liechtenstein, Hornkuhkäse is no ordinary alpine cheese. The milk used is that of horned cows. In the town of Urnäsch, where the cheese is made, virtually all cows still have their horns, as opposed to the 20% in Swiss agriculture. The symbiotic relationship between animal and farmer is fundamental there, and the cheese reflects it.

Hornkuhkäse has the flavors of a true alpine; nutty, brothy, with a nice sharp hint of onion. The texture is velvety smooth, and pleasantly melts in your mouth. In 2016 Hornkuhkäse placed first runner up in the World Championship Cheese Contest.

    Must have!

    Published by Jacqueline Savard on 26th May 2022

    Personally, I am truly an Appenzellerchaes girl. This is another cheese I didn't know and was a tad afraid to introduce to my American men (1 husband, 2 sons). They loved it! And so did I. This cheese is strong, yet softer in texture than an Appenzeller. It has so much flavor but isn't bitter at all. I served the cheeses with Wurzelbrot as well as Nussbrot and this one went very well with the Nussbrot. I also like strong cheeses with a slice of bread with 'Gomfi' on it - the sweetness and the cheese go so well together. My younger son actually suggested that I use some of the cheese for Gschwellti und Chaes! My husband is always amazed at the know how of Swiss Cheese makers!

    stong smell, not so strong taste

    Published by Unknown on 31st Mar 2022

    The taste is relatively mild ... which is good because I didn't like it. but that's on me. My wife loves it. I found the smell to be a little offputting in its strength, but not bad in its essence.

    This is a cheese I didn’t know from Switzerland. Had it the first time from SwissFavorites and it was amazingly good. Not overpowering, yet distinct. Everybody likes it and a pound of it was gone in one afternoon.
