 Product Description

Originating from Switzerland. Is a hard yellow unpasteurized cheese made from cow’s milk. It is named after the Gruyere valley of Fribourg, Switzerland. Like other Swiss cheeses, it is filled with many holes. It is usually cured anywhere from 3-10 months. The longer it cured the better. It has a sweet, nutty flavor, with a hint of fruity taste. Rusty brown in color and hard.

Gruyère cheese is generally known as one of the finest cheeses for baking, having a distinctive but not overpowering taste. In quiche, Gruyère adds savoriness without overshadowing the other ingredients. It is a good melting cheese, particularly suited for fondues, along with Vacherin and Emmental. It is also traditionally used in French onion soup, as well as in croque-monsieur, a classic French toasted ham and cheese sandwich. Gruyère is also used in chicken and veal cordon bleu. It is a fine table cheese, and when grated, it is often used with salads and pastas. It is used, grated, atop le tourin, a type of garlic soup from France which is served on dried bread.

Perfect Pairings

White wines, such as Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc pair well with Gruyère. Sparkling apple cider and Bock beer are also beverage affinities.
