Vacherin Fribourgeois

My husband and I are cheese lovers. So, over the weekend we tried a new cheese. Well, not a "new" cheese but, new to us. It's called Vacherin Fribourgeois. It's a Swiss mountain cheese made in the canton of Valais using milk from local village dairies. It says it's made using traditional mountain methods and the origin of the cheese dates back to 1448. It's made from unpasturized cows milk.

It's a semi-soft cheese with a nutty, creamy taste. There is a hint of strength at the end for lack of a better way to describe it. It's addictive. You take a piece and a cracker and you think okay that's enough for me. Then the next thing you know you're cutting off another piece. It's that kinda cheese. The kind you just want to keep on eating. So if you see it give it a try. It definitely gets a thumbs up from us.
