Chabert Tomme de Savoie Cheese
Tomme de Savoie is a rustic farmhouse style cheese from France, with a smooth firm texture and the flavors of mushrooms and milk. Cheesemonger's Note: This fragrant mold rind is brown and often features spots of grey and white mold.
Tomme de Savoie is an excellent example of the many French 'Tomme' cheeses. It is made in the Savoie region and also in the Haute-Savoie near to the Swiss border. 'Tomme' means 'piece' and is a general word for semi-hard cheeses. Tomme de Savoie is made from raw cow's milk, it has a rustic appearance and a distinctive hard, powdery rind with spots varying in color from grey to grey white. The paste is pale ivory to yellow in color, darkening at the rind, supple and with a few small holes scattered through it. The aroma is strongly grassy with ammonia, mushrooms, and caramel. The flavor is somewhat sweet with a fudge taste and a citrus tang; a fine example of French gourmet cheeses of the Savoie region.
