A cheese that ennobles the evening
This cheese promises harmony. With every bite, it combines all the components into a great whole. It is like a piece of music that enhances the meal, accompanies a conversation, and spices up the evening.
Many people asked me for a harmonious mountain cheese and I thought: why not? It should be a cheese in the tradition of Swiss Gruyère, a cheese from the mountains, with character and taste. I contacted many cheese dairies in the Gruyère region and couldn’t find the cheese I was looking for.
Then I remembered that we used to buy Gruyère in the mountains of the Bernese Oberland, near a mighty castle.
I knew I should find what I was looking for there. I drove around a bit in the car and found the castle again … now I just needed to find the dairy.
It occurred to me that not long ago I had visited a new dairy in this very area. I drove there and found out that this dairy made exactly the cheese I was looking for.
A mountain cheese made in the old tradition with raw mixed cultures, with the typical balanced yet tangy taste. Since the cheese is produced next to this great castle, I called it the Schlossherren cheese from the Bernese Oberland, strong, with character and full of harmony.
