Grand Trunk, Gruyere style cheese 170g, M.F. 39 %, Moisture 32 %, Aged 12-18 months
What appears to be a crumbly interior is actually rich and creamy on the palate with a nice balance of salt. The aromatic rind gives this cheese a contrasting texture to the interior and typical aromas associated with washed rind cheeses. Grand Trunk is named after the old railway bridge of the former Grand Trunk Railway in St. Marys.
Grand Trunk tastes excellent in sandwiches or on a cheese platter with fruits, dried meat and rustic bread. It is a great cheese for fondue or grilled cheese sandwiches. Grand Trunk is unique in its appearance and taste.
Ingredients: Unpasteurized milk, salt, rennet, bacterial culture.
Hans and Jolanda Weber immigrated to Canada in 1996 to begin a new life in St. Marys, Ontario, where they started their own dairy farm. Having previously worked in the Swiss Alps, it was always their dream to produce delicious, high quality cheese reminiscent of the renowned Swiss Mountains and made from their own milk. The fresh milk their cows produce is processed into a handcrafted, farmstead cheese. In order to obtain a great taste, the milk is unpasteurized and has no additives. This ensures the cheese is pure and natural.
