Semi-soft

M.F. : 24% Moisture : 48%

This washed-rind semi-soft cheese is made with pasteurized milk. Under its dark straw-coloured rind, which is ripened for over 9 weeks, you’ll find a soft and smooth cream-coloured interior. It has a strong lactic aroma and a marked flavour of hazelnut and mushroom with notes of milk and butter.

Originally from Switzerland, Fritz Kaiser brought with him the secret of raclette cheese. The Fritz Kaiser cheese maker produces several varieties of it:

Fritz Raclette

Fritz Pepper Raclette
Nutty aroma combines nicely with the marked spicy and fruit flavour.

Fritz Garlic Raclette
Nutty aroma paired nicely with the pronounced flavour of roasted garlic.

Fritz Raclette is available from the cheese maker, in specialty grocery stores and cheese shops, as well as in most supermarkets.
