Le Superbe Emmental cheese, Lustenberger & Dürst, Hünenberg See, Switzerland
Made from raw cow milk.
This is a perfect cheese to blend into your fondue. or more than one and a half centuries, and up to the present day, this cheese has been made in village dairies. The flavor is mild and nutty, and the cheese has famous cherry-sized holes.
The “eyes” form as bacterial cultures release carbon dioxide during ripening. The texture is semi-firm, and the taste is slightly sweet and nutty with a sharp finish. Emmental is great on sandwiches, a classic part of fondue, and an excellent snack.
