Emmi Cheese - Review -
I have a huge soft spot for cheese as can be seen in my Lactose Intolerance and Me. So when I was offered to work with a Emmi, company that does artisan cheeses you can bet I said yes. Also I had some high expectations from the product. Those expectations were not only met, they were exceeded.
The product arrived one week ago exactly I received about four packages of cheese, 2 of Gruyere and 2 of Emmentaler (Swiss). And I knew exactly what I was going to do for an appetizer for Christmas day.
One of the amazing things about hard cheese is that it is naturally gluten free, but most people don't realize that it is also Lactose free. I took two of the blocks and cubed them adding on gluten free (sodium nitrite/nitrate free) meats, Pears, and apples, and I had an amazing tray to serve my family and my guests, one that I could eat without having to worry about getting sick. My husband made the comment that this type of cheese can be dressed up or down and it still made a fantastic cheese.
This idea will work fantastically for a New Year’s party since these cheeses are naturally mostly allergen free. (Sorry for those with a milk allergy) I personally cubed mine; however, you can also slice it.
These cheeses would be perfect for a cheese and wine tasting, they can also be used to add some Class to a party or get together.
The Le Gruyere cheese had a tangy nutty flavor with a smooth finish, perfect for an open faced sandwich or with a great wine.
The Emmentaler is a sharper Swiss with a dryer texture, fantastic for shredding or mixing with smoky meats. This would also make an outstanding Fondue.
