So, what is gruyère cheese?

Gruyère cheese is a hard, nutty cheese originating from Switzerland. Made from unpasteurized cow's milk and aged for up to six months, it has a distinct taste, ranging from sweet and fruity to earthy and nutty, depending on its age. Its texture is firm yet creamy, making it ideal for melting in dishes like fondue or quiches. Gruyère cheese is also delicious when served on its own or as part of a cheese board. With its rich flavor and versatility, it's no wonder that gruyère cheese is a favorite of cheese lovers worldwide.
