Also known as Bellelay, this variety of cheese is from Switzerland where it is produced from unpasteurized cow's milk. Made into small cylinders that are often wrapped in foil, Tete De Moine cheese has a natural light tan to brown outer rind covering a light straw colored paste that is semi-firm in texture. With a strong aroma, the meat provides a wonderful hearty flavor that is somewhat nutty with a slight fruity overtone. Often served as a luncheon or snacking cheese it goes well with grain crackers or heavy breads, cured meats, fruits, and vegetables. Accompanied by robust red wines or stout beer and ale, Tete de Moine is also a good cheese for using in a fondue. When purchasing this cheese, make sure it is not too old which will give the cheese an overly pungent aroma and a noticeably rancid flavor.
