The fruit of ancestral savoir-faire
It is the doyen of the cheeses of Savoie, a gastronomic emblem of this beautiful region. Peasants originally created the Tomme to use up the skimmed milk left over once the butter had been made. It used to be only found in the high mountain pastures and the Savoyard chalets. During ripening the Tomme is carefully turned and rubbed by hand, a step that gives the superb rustic appearance and flavour. Our Tomme has a pale yellow paste and a distinct rural aroma. It is a cheese that melts in the mouth and offers a marvellous taste of hazelnuts.
