A delicate cheese with a sharp, fruity flavour, Appenzeller is made in
Switzerland from unpasteurized milk. The paste is smooth and dense, scattered
with a few pea-sized, perfectly round holes. The rind, washed with spices and
white wine or cider, is hard and thick. It is ripened for four to six months.
Fruity in taste and faintly spicy, Appenzeller goes well with fresh fruits and
nuts. It is also popular for spicing up fondues and cheese sauces.
The cheese is made in the northeastern Swiss canton of the same name, near
the Liechtenstein border. The genuine article has a coat of arms featuring a
bear; the identity of Appenzeller is officially proctected by a special
authority in St. Gallen, Switzerland. Also known as Appenzeller.
Wine Pairings: Semi-sweet whites, late harvest or light wines. Chenin Blanc,
full-bodied oak & butter flavoured Chardonnay, Chianti, Piedmont Reds,
Cabernet or Zinfandel.
