Tete de Moine
Pronounced tehduh MWHAN
Tête de Moine is a firm, milky Swiss cow's milk cheese with an exceptionally strong, nutty flavor. While comparable to Gruyère and other Swiss cheeses used for raclettes and fondues, Tête de Moine is a relatively small-format cheese, each wheel weighing a pound and a half to two pounds. Using a traditional cutting tool called a girolle, you can create beautiful Tête de Moine florets! Pair this cheese with Chardonnay or Rielsing.
Each cheese comes with a fromager note (describing the cheese with beverage pairing suggestions) and a cheese serving tag identifying its name, origin and milk type.
Sold by 2lb piece to fit the girolle slicer.
Please note: Because our cheeses are cut by hand exact weights may vary slightly.
