Lhney & Johana – “The Cheese Ladies”
SELECTED BY L'ATELIER DU FROMAGE
Box Discovery – January 2022
Featuring the Canton of Fribourg
Le Petit Glânois
Characteristics : A semi-hard cheese aged 2-3 months and matured with white wine
Type of milk : Cow, raw milk
Tasting Notes : A truly famous local favorite, Le Petit Glânois is unctuous and smooth with a complex taste that comes from the maturing process that involves white wine. The exact technique is a guarded secret! We tasted notes of hay and it finishes with a touch of nuts. This cheese also has that delicious stink of a good fondue!
Serving suggestion : A glass of white wine would complement this artisanal specialty, but it would be equally delicious melted inside a hot panini sandwich! Pass the paprika chips, please!
Péché Mignon Ciboulette
Characteristics : A soft, bloomy white rind cheese, aged 9 days, infused with locally grown chives
Type of milk : Cow, pasteurized
Tasting Notes : A perfect marriage of chives and fresh cream. You must close your eyes to savour this artisanal specialty and imagine yourself tiptoeing in the garden of fresh herbs. The secret to maintaining the fresh chive taste is timing – knowing when to add the chives to the cheesemaking process. Of course, this secret is in the vault!
Serving suggestion : A beautiful addition to a cheeseboard and served with crusty bread or crunchy crackers.
