Gruyere is the ultimate Swiss cheese. It is an unpasteurized
cow’s milk cheese with a complex, nutty-fruity flavor and a firm texture.
Gruyere is traditionally the go-to cheese for an elegant fondue, but there are
many more ways to enjoy its earthy intensity.
In addition to complimenting a well-thought out cheese
board, Gruyere is a very versatile cheese. It makes a great addition to a
quiche, particularly one that includes bacon and asparagus. Try it melted in a
Panini sandwich; ham and a grainy mustard are perfect accompaniments for a
hearty lunch-sized grilled treat. Fruit jams can be an unconventional addition
to a sandwich that includes Gruyere, or add some to your favorite scone recipe
for a savory breakfast alternative.
Wine lovers pair Gruyere with crisp Chardonnays,
particularly those with hints of apple, pear and citrus. Red wine aficionados indulge
in light, fruity Beaujolais or Pinot Noirs, which compliment the nutty
sharpness of a well-aged Gruyere.
