It is not cut, but shaved into thin, twirly rosette shaped slices using a special knife such as the “Girolle” or the “Pirouette”. As it is shaved, the surface of the cheese that comes into contact with the air is increased. Firstly, this alters the structure of the cheese dough and, secondly, it helps the full aromatic, melt-in-the-mouth taste to develop.

Tête de Moine AOP gets its unforgettable taste from the mountain milk in its natural state. It is produced in less than ten village dairies in its region of origin according to the strict requirements set out in the AOP specifications. It is kept on spruce wood boards for at least two and a half months.

Cheese connoisseurs appreciate Tête de Moine AOP as the icing on the cake of every cheese board, as an aperitif, a dessert or a snack. Tête de Moine rosette slices are best cut straight from the fridge.
