WELCOME TO YOUR BOX DISCOVERY FEATURING NIDWALDEN – NOVEMBER 2021

Welcome!

We have a delightful selection of artisanal cheeses that we discovered on our road trip through canton Nidwalden.  Our Box Discovery for November features two delicious specialties – one that has complex flavors that evolve on your palate and one that is tender, mild and creamy.  We can hardly wait to share them with you!

SELECTED BY L'ATELIER DU FROMAGE

Box Discovery – November 2021

Artisanal Cheeses from Canton Nidwalden

Charme

Characteristics :  A white, washed rind, semi-hard cheese aged 4 to 5 months

Type of milk :  Cow’s milk, thermized

Tasting Notes :  Charme is a local favorite that brings a smile to your face.  It has a tender, creamy texture and offers notes of grass and hay mingling with dairy flavors

Serving suggestion :  We love this cheese paired with a medium-body, Cabernet Jura Blanc de Noir by Tellen.  The intense notes of exotic fruits and melon on the nose marry beautifully with this tender cheese.

Waldhöcker

Käserei Bürg

Waldhöcker

Characteristics :  A semi-hard cheese aged 4 to 5 months

Type of milk :  Cow’s milk, thermized

Tasting Notes :  Waldhöcker has a complex taste that keeps you guessing the flavors.  At first we tasted herbs, honey, and a slight earthiness.  These flavors make sense given the name “wald” which translates to forest.  Then followed by notes of dried flowers and herbal tea.  There is also a vegetal flavor… could that be broccoli?  Waldhöcker is a delicious surprise to your taste buds!  What do you taste?

Serving suggestion :  A beautiful, complex-tasting cheese that would spark conversation at an apéro.  Allow this specialty to warm to room temperature to fully enjoy all its flavors.

Visiting the cheese dairies of Nidwalden

Our favorite part of our job is visiting the cheese dairies and meeting the cheesemakers and their employees.  This time we were surprised!  We grilled raclette outside the cheese dairy and savored it inside the cheese caves!  An amazing experience that we will never forget!
