I love this cheese. It has become an essential part of any cheese platter I serve. Not only does it look interesting, it is deliciously nutty. I sneak a piece here and there with a crisp slice of apple.
One of the best hard cheese ever - slice thinly it fits perfectly in sandwiches, you can make sticks of it for your kids - they will love it too. So tasty and getting perfectly with wine too..:)
A long time favourite, used to purchase at a local shop that has since closed. So happy we have found it again!
A great, easy to eat hard cheese
