The “Monk's head” cheese from Switzerland is an exquisite delicacy originating from the Berner Jura. The cheese is made from whole summer cow's milk and was first produced in 1192 in the “l’Etoile”abbey. The Bellalay, another name for Tête-de-Moine, is a strongly pressed cheese with a full taste and a herby aroma.
The Tête-de-Moine cheese is excellent as dessert cheese
with a glass of sherry, crispy dry white or full-bodied fruity red wine. The cheese curl you make from cheese with the Boska Holland cheese curler can be sprinkled with seasonal pepper and is extra delicious
