Emmental (also called Swiss Cheese) is known for its grand size and its handmade quality. For more than one-and-a-half centuries to date, Emmental has been made in village cheese dairies. The Emmental cheese-making process is an old tradition using pure raw cow’s milk and a maturation period of at least four months. This process allows the rind to develop in an entirely natural manner, enclosing an ivory colored, mild, slightly nutty tasting cheese with cherry sized holes. Emmental is a delicacy on every cheese platter, a popular dessert cheese and is a perfect melting cheese for warm dishes like fondue.
