Tête de Moine AOP

Step back in time to when this cheese was the talk of the town, an elegant treat gracing the tables of French nobles and Swiss bishops. Fast forward to today, and the Tête de Moine AOP is still a sought-after delicacy, a true feast for the senses. The floral, creamy, and spicy notes with a hint of saltiness are best savored when shaved into delicate rosettes using a special knife.
This cylindrical cheese, weighing approximately2 lbs, has been around since the 12th century, originating in the Jurassic Bellelay monastery. Today, the local village cheese dairy produces it using only the best natural raw milk from cows that graze on mountain grass and hay.
Once a hidden gem, now a well-protected treasure of the region, no apéro tray is complete without the Tête de Moine AOP.

To maintain quality, our cheese inventory is constantly refreshing. We cannot guarantee that a cheese is in stock at a quantity sufficient to fill on order.  Orders for out of stock or limited quantities will be notified, substitutions recommended and purchases partially or wholly refunded if necessary.  

1-2 day shipping is required at checkout.  Cheese is shipped on Monday - Wednesday in insulated packaging with cold packs.  Cheese should be refrigerated immediately after receipt.
