Gruyere is a popular cheese known and loved by many around the world. It is named after the town of Gruyeres in Friborg and is made in many towns in the surrounding area. Gruyere is a semi-hard cheese that has an excellent texture, bouquet, and palate.
This particular gruyere from La Dent Du Chat is quite young, meaning its flavor profiles are quite fresh, but far more subtle than a gruyere aged for a longer period. It is nutty, sharp, and has a refreshing sweetness to it. It does have a rind so make sure to remove this before consuming.
Gruyere is known by many as an excellent melting cheese. This is because of the high water-to-oil ratio. This means that when the cheese melts, the evaporating water content will stop the cheese from pooling into large globs of fat and oil. The result is a smooth, textured cheese with an intense flavor and freshness.
Cheeses (except brined ones in jars) should be stored in the crisper or the butter drawer of a refrigerator, not on the shelves themselves. This is to help regulate their temperature and humidity levels—and prevents the formation of mold. Once opened, they should not be kept in their original packaging. Soft cheeses with delicate rinds need to breathe, so they are best placed in glass containers lined with paper towels to absorb extra moisture. Leave the lid open a tiny bit for air to circulate and don’t forget to write up a label with the date you first opened the package. Kindly pay attention to the best before date label when you receive your cheese. Consume prior to date indicated.
