CHEESE OF THE MONTH

Tête de Moine means "Monk's Head" and is derived from the original recipes from the monks of the abbey of Bellelay, in the mountaineous zone of the Bernese Jura, the French-speaking area of canton of Bern. Since May 2001, it has enjoyed an "Appellation d'origine contrôlée" (AOC). Tasting Notes - Tête de Moine is best when carefully scraped with a knife in order to develop its scented flavours. It is excellent with dry white wine, after being matured for a minimum of 2.5 months on small plank of spruce. In 1982 the girolle was invented, an apparatus which makes it possible to make rosettes of Tête de Moine by turning a scraper on an axle planted in the centre of the cheese which increases the amount of air coming into contact with the surface of the cheese, altering the structure of its body and allowing the full flavour to develop.
