Caring For Your Cheese
Shipping Notes

Etivaz cheese is a hand crafted cow’s milk cheese from Switzerland. The process of making this cheese is detailed and involved, but very worth the while. Raw milk is cooked over an open wood burning fire and steeped with Alpine flora. The smoke from the usually Spruce fire flavors the cheese and the floral notes stay behind and give this cheese’s hard paste an incredible flavor. Etivaz is sometimes considered to be a younger sibling to Gryuere cheese, as it is similar, but creamier and less sharp.

Enjoy slices of Etivaz at the end of your meal with fruits and nuts, pears and figs work especially well. Alternatively, add it to your cheese platter in place of the classic Gruyere. It will make for an interesting departure from the norm.

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
