The cylindrical shaped Tête de Moine cheese, which means "monk's head", has been produced in Switzerland for more than eight centuries.

This unique cheese is traditionally shaved into thin, rosette shaped slices rather than being sliced by hand with a knife. Shaving the cheese in this fashion allows its flavours to fully develop.

A special knife called a "Girolle" is used to simply shave the cheese from the top, thin layer by thin layer.

The delicate cheese rosettes that result melt in your mouth. The texture is dense, with an intense, fruity, sweet flavour.
