Cheese is really important in Swiss and French culture. That’s common for us to make a dinner with cheese and bread only. We have so many different kinds of cheese that we can never get bored! Depending on the cheese we can associate some jelly, fruits or honey.
The « Tomme Vaudoise » is a Swiss cheese made of cow milk belonging to the family of the semi-soft cheese. Probably born around the seventeenth century in the alpine chalets next to the Joux lake in the Jura Vaudois. The making of this cheese is relatively quick and durate about eight days. The « Tomme Vaudoise » may be flavoured or contain ingredients such as cumin, wild garlic or even truffle.
