L’Artisan Gruyere: Review

Very good example of a cooking cheese that is too good for cooking. L’Artisan Gruyere is made from organic milk from sustainably reared cows. Most people think of Gruyere as a cooking cheese and less often as one to consume by itself or with crackers. This cheese is good for putting on a platter (and yes, good for cooking with). It is a younger style of Gruyere so it has creamy nutty flavours. What makes this cheese stand out is the texture. It had a degree of softness that makes is good to cut and very good in the mouth.

Wine Matching | Wine Pairing

It’s a semi-hard at the milder dairy end, so go for a fuller bodied white wine like a chardonnay or Soumah Estate Viognier. Or see my cheese and wine pairing guide for more options.

Where to Buy

I bought mine direct from Ripe in Melbourne, howver L’Artisan cheeses have good distribution and their stockists are listed on their website.
