Tomme de Savoie is an excellent example of the many French 'Tomme' cheeses. It is made in the Savoie region and also in the Haute-Savoie near to the Swiss border. 'Tomme' means 'piece' and is a general word for semi-hard cheeses.

Tomme de Savoie is made from raw cow's milk, it has a rustic appearance and a distinctive hard, powdery rind with spots varying in color from grey to grey white. The paste is pale ivory to yellow in color, darkening at the rind, supple and with a few small holes scattered through it.

The aroma is strongly grassy with ammonia, mushrooms, and caramel. The flavor is somewhat sweet with a fudge taste and a citrus tang; a fine example of French gourmet cheeses of the Savoie region.

We hand-cut and wrap Tomme de Savoie in wedges of 8 ounces and 1 pound and you can also purchase a wheel of approx. 4 pounds.
