The quintessential Swiss cheese with cherry-sized holes. True Emmental cheese can only be made in the Emmental Valley of west central Switzerland. Its production is regulated according to strict AOP (“Appellation d’Origine Protégée”) or “Protected Designation of Origin” regulations, which state the region of Switzerland where its milk must be sourced from, and where it is produced and matured.
Emmental is an essential cheese in any Swiss Fondue because of its meltability and a sweet and nutty flavour. Try it in a sandwich, grilled cheese, or serve it on a cheese platter with a glass of Riesling.
