Detailed Description for Gruyere 4-5 lb Swiss Cheese
Gruyere cow's milk hard cheese
Gruyere cheese owes its name to a little village in the canton of Fribourg in
Gruyere is buttery and toasty-flavored cheese. It is hard with a firm, yet pliable
texture. The texture is dense and compact, yet flexible. It is this density
that makes it stronger and less stringy than Emmental when heated, so it is
better for grating, grilling and in soups.
When Gruyere is first cut, the aroma suggests a million meadow flowers trapped
in rich, creamy milk. Sligtly grainy, the cheese has a wonderful complexity
of flavors – at first fruity, then revealing more earthy, nutty characteristic
that linger the palate.
