Product Info

This traditional hard, 12-months matured cows’-milk cheese delivers a sweet, nutty flavour with a hint of fruit. Lovely as it is, with fruit and crackers, it also works well in most recipes, and pairs beautifully with French onion soup.

Origins

This authentic Swiss Gruyère is a product of a partnership between Fromagerie Le Crêt and affineur Fromage Gruyère SA. Master Cheese-maker Jean-Marie Dunand runs the village dairy in the heartland of traditional Gruyère production in the Fribourg region of Switzerland. The dairy, which dates back to 1900, has been run by Dunand since 1986. He makes 18-20 wheels of Gruyère each day, 365 days a year, using freshly delivered milk from eight small local farms. The cows graze on mountain pasture, and the unique composition of the grass is reflected in the cheese.

How to Cook

Gruyère cheese is generally known as one of the finest cheeses for baking, having a distinctive but not overpowering taste. In quiche, Gruyère adds savouriness without overshadowing the other ingredients. It is a good melting cheese, particularly suited for fondues, along with Vacherin and Emmental, and is also traditionally used in French onion soup, as well as in croque-monsieur, a classic French toasted ham and cheese sandwich.
