Abondance Fermier 150g

$61

Tomme d’Abondance or Abondance is a medium-sized mountain cheese from the Haute Savoie region of France in the Rhone-Alps. For centuries, this deep golden cheese has been made in mountain chalets, near the border between France and Switzerland. It is made exclusively from unpasteurised milk produced by the Abondance breed of cattle. Since 1990, the cheese has been enjoying the prestigious AOC designation. The handcrafted, wheel-shaped cheese, is made using traditional methods only in the geographical area specified by AOC/PDO label.

It has a strong smell and an intensely fruity, buttery and hazelnut flavour, with balance of acidity and sweetness, followed by a lingering aftertaste. Unearth an aroma of nutty vegetation as you slice the cheese. However, remember the crust including the grey layer beneath, should be removed before eating. Firm but supple and slightly grainy, the texture of the ivory-yellow pâté is creamy and velvety. Its rind is smooth with an amber colour showing canvas marks. The affinage takes at least 100 days, so all the subtle aromas are realized.

Abondance can be eaten straight off, or added to salads or melted in Berthoud.

Dear customers, many of you have been asking us what would happen in the coming weeks: Our activity remains unchanged and we will keep bringing you nice and responsible products every week delivered to your door step. However, we are experiencing some difficulties with flights cancellation or delay so you might have to wait a bit longer to receive your order if such event would happen in the coming weeks ;-) Of course, we will do our best to update you if any change would arise in the delivery schedule. In April, NO MORE DELIVERIES ON FRIDAY, only on SATURDAY afternoon.  We thank you for your comprehension and we rely on your support and patience if those exceptional situations would occur. To be 100% transparent, our prices has been a little bit modified due to the high increase of the transportation cost between France to Hong Kong and high local product demand in France.

Don't hesitate to contact us to see if we have some products in stock if you are out of our regular order schedule!

Thank you for your support and understanding in this complicated time.
