Milk: Cow, Unpasteurized

Country: Switzerland, St Gallen

Texture: Firm

Accompaniment: Fruity reds, dry whites

Inspired by the Swiss tradition to dress up as demons, wizards and witches at Carnevale, a pre-Lent festival, the cheese is made by a 3rd generation cheese maker in an Appenzeller-style with a dusting of paprika on the rind after the traditional washing with brine during the maturing stage.

The cheese is mild, creamy and nutty, with some Tyrosine crystals developing. The cheese has a definite aroma, a result of the washing, certainly not offensive, reminiscent of toasted nuts and bacon.

Have this cheese with some fresh fruit or dried sausage.
