About This Food

Description

Pronounced “Grew-yair”, this cheese has been produced since the 11th century in the Alpine area between Switzerland and France.

Best known for its use in fondue, gruyere has a nutty, rich, full bodied flavor and a firm texture with a few tiny eyes.

The surface is ripened with an inedible brown rind.

Because cheese is essentially milk that is condensed it is important to choose gruyere cheese made from organic milk, free from hormones.

Selecting & Storing

Choose organic gruyere cheese and keep refrigerated. Gruyere pairs well with chicken, potatoes, apples, pears, grapes, pickles, and mustards. For wines try fruity white wines such as Gewurztraminer and Sauvignon Blanc; red wines such as Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
