Product Description

This is a relatively young cheese (6 - 9 months) from the Gruyere district of Switzerland.  With its delightfully nutty, spicy, full flavor, it is a delicious as a table cheese. Upon eating Gruyere, one immediately recognizes the taste of whole milk that is used exclusively in making this grand cheese. We say it is grand because a whole wheel of Gruyere weighs about 80 pounds. In fact, it takes over 100 gallons of milk to make a single wheel of Gruyere! Enjoy this traditional favorite julienned into a chef's salad, melted on a hot open-faced sandwich, or, of course, in a classic cheese fondue.

  1. Mild Gruyere - full flavor and creamy texture 5 Star Review

    The mild Gruyere has the same full flavor as the Cave Aged Gruyere but a creamier texture. Delicious to cook with and served as an appetizer!
