  • Cow Milk

  • Approachable
  • Soft

From the Savoie region in the Rhône-Alpes, this raw cow’s milk cheese is tangy and rustic, with notes of wet straw and dried fruit that reflect its native Alpine terroir. Lightly pressed and aged between two and four months, this mountain staple is made from the skimmed milk leftover from making rich butters and cheeses. Try with some Effie's Homemade Oatcakes and a spoonful of Divina Fig Spread for a sweet, earthy snack.

“I love introducing people to this cheese. It’s an extremely approachable raw milk cheese but still has that earthy, sweet complexity. I like to pair this with broccoli or asparagus and Jambon de Bayonne.”

Allergens: Milk

  • Tomme is a term used for small, round cheeses—typically, it is also combined with the region or town where the cheese is produced.
  • In this case, Tomme de Savoie is a raw cow’s milk cheese made in the Savoie region of France, near the French Alps.
  • This semi-soft cheese is dotted with small, irregular eyes.
  • Its mottled rind has a soft, velvet-like appearance due to the natural mold that forms.
  • Because the cream is skimmed before the cheese is made, Tomme de Savoie has a relatively low-fat content of about 20 – 45% fat.
  • The cheese was traditionally made as a byproduct of other cheeses, like the richer Beaufort, hence its lower fat content.
When you receive your cheese, unpack the order and refrigerate the items. We recommend using the cheese paper we send most of our products in to store the cheese. The cheese paper helps cover the items and stop them from drying out, while also allowing the cheese to breathe. Since cheese is mold, it's a living thing! If you cut off air circulation to the cheese, you can actually cause it to suffocate and spoil at a faster rate.
