Vacherin Mont D'or cheese is a much-prized seasonal cheese from France and Switzerland. This is the unpasteurised French version. Vacherin is only available between September and March when the cows have been brought down from the high Alpine pastures to spend winter in barns. Mont D'or is soft and velvety and can be eaten as it is with a spoon or warmed in the oven to dip some lovely fresh bread or crackers in.Wrapped in a spruce strip, called a sangle, the cheese takes on some of this flavour so you get a piney note in with the lactic gentleness. Although it looks like it should be fairly stinky, it's a real delicate affair. Made with unpasteurised cow's milk.
