Description: Mont d'Or or Vacherin du Haut-Doubs is a raw cow's milk cheese from Franche-Comté, France, matured for 21 days. Mont d'Or is highly seasonal. Traditionally made with the winter milk of the same cows that produce Gruyere/ Comté in the summer, this cheese is made between 15 August and 15 March and only available mid-September till April. The AOP requires that the cheese is produced with the milk of only two breeds of cows: Montbéliardes and Simmental. The cheese has a soft, pale brown rind, with deep, wave-like indentations and a yielding texture. Mont d'Or is encircled with spruce bark and packed in a circular spruce box, which both flavours the cheese and gives to the rind a specific appearance of hills. The flavour is rich, a little sweet, with grassy undertones. Mont d'Or can be eaten like a Fondue or on a table cheese.
Weight: Baby Mont d'Or: Approx. 450g/piece (serves 2-3 persons)
