Affectionately called “the baked potato cheese,” Hornbacher is an Alpine comfort food. It’s crafted in Wasen, Switzerland, from raw cow’s milk. Alongside those nourishing notes of baked potato are undertones of roasted nuts and caramelized onions. Melt it over roasted root vegetables for a warming, homey meal. Or keep it simple and snack on a slice with your favorite oaky wine.

“This cheese is crafted with cheesy connoisseurs in mind. It pairs nicely with classic dessert wines such as a sherry or port.”
