Gruyere has a sweet and slightly salty flavour, creamy and nutty when young becoming more earthy and complex as it matures (our Cave Aged Gruyere has been matured for up to 12 months in the secluded caves near Lucerne in Switzerland).
A wonderful cheese for baking with as it melts beautifully but is particularly suited for fondues together with Vacherin and Emmental. Traditionally Gruyere is used in French Onion soup and Croque Monsieur.
