Emmentaler is the best known Swiss cheese throughout the world, which is why it is often simply called Swiss. The large holes and the size of the cheeses are other features which have contributed to Emmentaler's worldwide reputation. 10 Emmentaler cheesemakers care passionately about their traditional craft. Their cheese is made in small village dairies using milk from local farmers who even know the names of their cows. The cows graze on succulent flowering meadows in summer and eat sun-dried hay in the winter. Only the best quality raw milk cheese is suitable for the long ripening process. This particular Emmentaler is young enough to retain a creamy bite and spring texture, with a sweet and nutty flavor profile perfect for sandwiches but rich enough for melting in your favorite recipes!
