Girolle & Tete de Moine Set
“Tete De Moine” means “head of the monk,” and the monks of the Bellelay Abbey in the Swiss Jura Mountains certainly had a sense of humor when inventing this cheese. The small wheels of semi-hard raw cow’s milk cheese are shaved down into bite-sized curlicues using the monks’ original tool called a Girolle—a simple, round wooden platform with a steel rod sticking up from the center. A small scraping knife is placed atop the rod (like a flag), and turned like a crank, dragging it across the top of the bared cheese to produce thin slices of intense, fruity flavor. Enjoy these potent shavings of Tete De Moine with a handful of dried fruit or a heavy dessert wine.
