In the 12th century, visionary monks in Haute-Savoie discovered the art of making Abondance cheese. Its fame grew when it was served to Pope Clement VII in 1381 and became a sought-after delicacy at the Court of Savoy. Remarkably, Abondance cheese was even used as a form of currency during times of limited cash. Its illustrious history and esteemed reputation make Abondance cheese a cherished culinary gem.
Abondance Fermier is a semi-hard, raw milk cheese with a smooth, velvety texture and a complex, fruity flavour that reveals hints of hazelnut and butter and a slight bitter final note.
This cheese can be enjoyed on a cheese platter or melted on potatoes with cold cuts with a glass of Apremont de Savoie.
To store it, wrap it in parchment paper and keep it in the vegetable drawer of your refrigerator.
