Tete De Moine  which literally means "monk's head" is from Bellelay, Switzerland.  This raw cow's milk aged mountain cheese is pale yellow in color and matured for 3-4 months.
Traditionally, this cheese is used with a Girolle - a cheese cutter or slicer which scrapes off the cheese from the top.  This cheese has a strong, intense flavor, excellent with fresh or dried fruit and a nice full bodied red wine.

Extremely Unique!

In order to enjoy this cheese the way it is meant to be eaten, you must also buy the "Girolle". This tool allows you to "shave" the monk's head, which produces a very thin slice in the shape of a flower!! This cheese has a very intense flavor, so being able to slice it so thin is absolutely mandatory. In fact, if you're not a fan of "stinky cheese", don't even consider it. But if you are, this is an absolute explosion in your mouth! Goes great with merlot or cab. Aside - keep in refrigerator, but let it warm slightly prior to shaving it. Don't let it dry out, and NEVER freze it. Enjoy!
