Product Description


    Emmentaler AOP - "Höhlengold" "Cave d'Or" Cheese

    Yes, the one with the famous big holes!!! But there is more to it. Emmentaler, or often referred to as "Swiss cheese" or the "King of Swiss Cheeses" is a yellow, medium-hard Swiss cheese that originated in the area around Emmental, Canton Bern. It has a savory but mild taste.

    The famous cheese from the valley with the Emme river in the canton of Bern got its name. There the cheese production can be traced back to the 13th century. Emmentaler AOP is today produced in around 120 village dairies from fresh, untreated milk from cows that eat grass and hay but never see silage. One kilogram of cheese takes about 12 liters of milk. Any additives and genetically modified ingredients are prohibited.

    The round cheese loaves have a diameter of 80 to 100 cm and weigh 75 to 120 kg. Size, tradition and outstanding quality make the Emmentaler the undisputed “King of Cheeses” worldwide. Emmentaler is usually enjoyed cold in pieces or slices. But it is also ideal as a tasty ingredient in warm cuisine. The most typical feature of the Emmentaler AOP are its holes. They are cherry to nut-sized and arise during the cheese curing process.

    "Höhlengold / Cave d'Or" - In Switzerland there are unique conditions for the processing of cheese in natural caves. This protected environment allows the cheese wheels to mature into a special cheese under ideal temperature and humidity conditions. Together with the knowledge and many years of experience of the cheese masters, the cheese can develop its qualities and its special character.

    This fine art of maturing technology gives the Höhlengold cheese a very special, incomparable taste, which is appreciated by cheese lovers. Indulge your taste buds with a very special experience.
