Gruyère is a hard cheese made in Switzerland from cow's milk. It is a semi-firm cheese with a nutty, earthy flavour and a slightly sweet finish. Gruyère is often aged for up to 12 months; the longer it is aged, the more flavorful it becomes.
Gruyère is a versatile cheese that can be enjoyed on its own, as part of a cheese plate, or melted into fondue and quiche. It is also a famous cheese for grating, and it can add flavour and texture to various dishes.
Gruyère is a protected designation of origin (PDO) cheese, meaning it can only be made in certain parts of Switzerland. The PDO ensures that Gruyère cheese is made to the highest quality standards.
