A wise Frenchman once shared with us his recipe for the best fondue: Comté, Comté and more Comté!  While this might be a bit excessive, it’s certainly true that Comté is one of the world’s best melting cheeses, with a silky, even texture and rich flavor that’s both full and sweetly unassuming at the same time. 

Our wheels come from Essex St. Cheese Co., founded by Daphne Zepos and Jason Hinds to bring some of Europe’s finest cheeses into the US.  This particular Comté is so versatile and exceptionally good that for a long while it was the only cheese being imported by their company.  Each wheel is hand-selected for an especially refined flavor profile, which balances the aromas of grassy milk with rich hazelnuts and sweet onions.  This is a cheese that can be as fancy as you want it to be, whether that means providing the perfect complement to a bottle of light red wine or bubbling atop a tuna melt.
