Préféré de nos Montagnes is a modern version of an old cheese with a long history. During the Middle-Ages, farmers in the Haute Savoie paid their taxes with part of their milk production. When tax collectors called, they only partially milked their cows, so as to lower their level of production and their taxes. After the tax officers had left, the farmers would go back and milk the cows again. The milk from the second milking was much richer and was used to make this beautiful washed rind cheese. Préféré de nos Montagnes translates as ‘Favourite from our Mountains’. An elegant cheese, it has a moist, supple semi- soft interior, a creamy texture, delicate aromas, and a light hazelnut flavour. The perfect cheese for Tariflette. Place this beautiful washed rind cheese to melt through layers of potatoes, bacon and cream in the oven. Delicious
