Caring For Your Cheese
Shipping Notes

Emmentaler Cheese is a whole cow’s milk cheese. Although once produced only in Switzerland, the name is not protected so France and Germany are both big producers of this Swiss like cheese. The paste of this cheese is pale and buttery with large holes, or eyes, typical of a Swiss cheese.

The nutty, fruity flavor of Emmentaler is wonderful enough to be enjoyed on its own as a snacking cheese, or as part of a cheese platter with crackers and grapes. However, if you are interested in cooking with it, Emmentaler is a wonderful melting cheese. It is considered a pillar of fondue making; it is also wonderful in sandwiches and sauces.

If you are looking for a specific wine pairing, try Jura Blanc, but don’t be afraid to experiment. This cheese was made to be enjoyed with a glass of wine so try it with your favorite and it will probably be a wonderful combination.

Upon receipt of your order the ice pack may no longer be frozen. This is expected and should not be the cause of alarm. The cheese should be cool to room temperature. Once rewrapped and stored properly the cheese will last up to 3 weeks.

For optimal storage allowing the cheese to breathe and retain moisture wrap the cheese in wax paper, plastic wrap or tin foil upon arrival.

A - Bloomy rind, tomes, hard or dry rind cheeses - wrap only the cut surface in plastic wrap, leaving the rind exposed so the cheese can breathe.

B - Blue cheeses should be wrapped securely in tin foil.

C - Washed rind cheeses should be wrapped in wax paper.

D - Small cheeses such as goat’s milk crottin should be wrapped in wax paper.

E - Soft cheeses store well in waxed paper or sealed containers.

Store your cheese in a cool, damp place such as a wine cellar, larder, wine cabinet, or in the vegetable drawer of your refrigerator (the warmest part of the refrigerator).

As a general rule, aged hard cheeses last longer than softer, less aged varieties.

For the fullest flavor it is recommended to bring cheese to room temperature before serving.

* See cheese label for proper storage recommendations
