Large Vacherin du Mont d Or os

  • Approx 3kg
  • Unpasteurised
  • It is only produced between the middle of August and end of March.
  • One of the most spectacular cheeses you can buy; great for a party or an event; a real show stopper  This cheese is unusual as it uses unpasteurised spring milk to form the soft, wonderfully aromatic and velvety cheese. Most cheeses need meadowsweet summer milk to reach this level of flavour. It is meltingly rich verging on a clotted cream taste. The billowy crust is washed pinky peach with an earthy sappy aroma. The bark around the cheese helps to achieve its texture and perfume. Spreadable even when young, but to get the best effect and flavour you should eat it when it is fully ripe and runny. The traditional way of eating one is to cut off the top rind and eat the runny cheese out of the centre. Alternatively wrap the box cheese in tin foil and bake it in your oven at 180°C for 20 minutes. Remove the tin foil and lid of the cheese and cut a circle around the crust and lift it off to reveal the cheese. Dip in bite sized steamed new potatoes, pieces of French bread, garlic cloves or raw sticks of vegetables. Approx 12" (30cm) diameter and weighs approx 3kg When out of season you can also use Clarines cheese which is produced by the same makers all year round
