Fromagerie l'Ancêtre Swiss - Certified Organic | Fromagerie L'Ancêtre



This Swiss cheese offers the perfect balance of salty and sweet with the unique taste (and holes!) that result from propionic acid fermentation.

Its slightly tangy flavour at the start will take your taste buds on a trip to Switzerland that ends with a delicately sweet, fruity finish. This soft yet solid cheese is famous for its typical hazelnut-sized holes.

Our gluten free and lactose free Swiss is the perfect choice for baked and grilled dishes – not to mention French onion soup! It is delicious just as it is, on your morning toast or in sandwiches, of course.
