Gruyere cheese

Gruyere cheese is a yellow cheese made from cow's milk. It was originally made in Switzerland and is named after the village of Gruyere in Switzerland.

Gruyere cheese is a hard, slightly salty and piquant cheese. When fully aged (three to twelve month) there tend to be small holes and cracks unlike the more famous Emmenthaler cheese[?]. It is generally a pricy cheese (US??).


  • Fondue[?]: Gruyere is a main component of cheese fondue besides Vacherin[?] and Emmenthaler (depends on recipe).
  • Quiche: Adds savoury without overshadowing the other ingredients.
  • Grated/Shaved: On Salads and Pasta.
