Mont d'Or

Ok! They are here now.
Vacherin Mont d'Or needs no more introduction. This year, I will definitely try the Mont d'Oriflette recipe that I have found on the internet. Picture this: a variation on Tartiflette, using Mont d'Or instead of Reblochon, Genius!

Raclette au Genepi - tunnel de Sixt

Moelleuse au Genepi is a raw milk raclette washed with Genepi (the liqueur made from plant extract and wormwood flowers, very popular in the Savoy region) and then matured in the Sixt tunnel (an old railway tunnel, with steady levels of humidity and constant temperature, now used for maturing cheeses for the cooperative of the Thones). Moelleuse au Genepi, as its name suggest is creamy with an intense, fruity taste. Perfect for traditional cooking but also very pleasant on it's own.

Criffel now back in stock!

What a treat, it was to discover Criffel back on our shelves! After a painfully long absence, the semi-soft, washed rind organic cheese from Loch Arthur creamery is back. Tasting this new batch was a real pleasure: Pungeant, sticky, young but soft under the rind, it didn't disappoint.
Let's not forget that the Loch Arthur cheddar is also back and tasting great!
