Vacherin Mont d'Or

This cheese has been called the ‘Holy Grail’ of cheeses. For some, it’s the best time of the year. For us, it’s a rare, true treat!! In France, Vacherin Mont d’Or is always unpasteurized. The Truffle Cheese Shop has received the thermalized version- slightly more gentle form of pasteurization- from Switzerland. Vacherin comes from the high alps and is only sold between September 10th and May 10th. The Truffle Cheese Shop will only stock them while supplies last!

This beauty is hand wrapped in Spruce bark and meant to age and be consumed in it’s box. Rub the rind with garlic, or put a few cloves into the cheese rind itself. Then pour a bit of white wine on top. Cover with foil and bake in a medium oven until super creamy. Use this as your fondue bowl! Dip crusty bread, apples, pickles or veggies.
