Tomme de Savoie Cheese

Tomme de Savoie is a French cheese made from unpasteurised cow’s milk. Produced in the Savoie region, this cheese is characterised by a semi-firm texture with a natural rind and an ivory colour. Cheeses produced in the French Alps and Switzerland are referred to as Tomme cheeses, but they are all usually named after the village in which they are produced. The taste of the cheese varies depending on whether the cows are being fed winter hay or summer grass, taking around 2-4 months to mature, but generally, its flavour is described to be nutty and earthy.

Tomme de Savoie makes for a great pairing with medium-bodied red wines like Côtes du Rhône and Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Serve with sausage, fruit and/or bread. Ideal fruit pairings include apples and pears.
