I am in love with Alpine cheese (and you should be too!). I just cannot get enough of these amazing cheeses from the Alps of France, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, and Italy. Their unique flavor and complexity never cease to amaze me. Every time I bite into one of these works of art it takes my palate on a savory, buttery, nutty, and sometimes wonderfully stinky journey. A few of my favorites are Beaufort, Vacherin Mont d’Or, Chällerhocker, Scharfe Maxx 365, Heublumen, Comté, Sennerkase, Alta Badia, and Hubaner Emmentaler! So, if your mouth is watering as much as mine, run down to your LOCAL, INDEPENDENT cheese shop and pick up one of these beauties!
And be sure to pick up a dry Riesling or Gewurztraminer to go with!
