This firm, rindless, lactose-free cheese is made from pasteurized milk. The ivory interior of this Swiss-type cheese is dotted with large, round holes. Its texture is smooth, shiny and elastic. With a mild and fruity flavour and hints of almond, it’s a real crowd pleaser for fans of all ages. It is available in blocks, sliced or grated. It can be served in 1,001 ways—it’s perfect for snacks, divine in au gratin dishes and crepes, and a must for cheese platters.
Cogruet Swiss is said to be the first Swiss-type cheese to be made in Quebec (since 1984). Developed by master cheese makers drawing on a long tradition, its reputation for quality is well known in Quebec and abroad.
Cogruet Swiss is available from the cheese maker, in specialty cheese shops and grocery stores, and in most supermarkets.
