Tete De Moine Whole Wheel


This full wheel is ready for shaving! Eight centuries ago, in the Swiss Jura Mountains, monks of Bellelay Abbey had a sense of humor. Fashioning small cylindrical ''monk's head'' cheeses, they invented a machine, called a girolle, to thinly shave away layers from the top, exposing a "bald spot" and making flower-like cheese curls. Made of raw cow's milk, this semi-hard cheese has a dense texture and a seriously intense, fruity flavor. One of the stronger, sweeter Swiss cheeses we've experienced, it pairs nicely with fresh or dried fruits or hearty dessert wines of equal intensity.
