Cheese - Tete de Moine 2 lbs

Made by abbey monks deep in the Jura mountains, this cylindrical wheel of alpine cheese was invented over 800 years ago. Named "Monk's Head" in honor of its origin, thin shavings are taken off the top much like how monk's traditionally shave a bald spot (tonsure) on theirs as well. With a dense texture and fruity flavor, each thin shaving is rich in flavor since only pasture-fed cows are milked. To learn more about Tete de Moine click here! PLEASE NOTE A FULL WHEEL (AROUND 2 LBS) IS SHIPPED FOR THIS CHEESE, NOT AN 8 OZ PIECE.

Ingredients & Storage Tips

Ingredient(s):Raw cow milk, rennet, salt, enzyme, cheese culture
Storage Tips: Refrigerate any cheeses and meats in a drawer close to where most of the produce is kept. After each time that you slice the cheese, re-wrap it with fresh plastic wrap to extend the shelf life. While some chefs will freeze a slice of blue and then grate it over a salad before serving, Chef's Mandala doesn't recommend freezing cheeses in general.

Flavors & Uses

For a cheese plate serve with a French camembert and American Kunik. Or pair with a cave aged Swiss Emmenthaler and reblochon. Sides that work include spicy pickles, luscious charcuterie and a few dried figs.
