Cheese hot tub


"you had me at hot, oozy, melted cheese."

Served simply with grilled bread and cornichons, this legendary fromage from the french alps is made with the legendary la societe framagere du livradois Montboissie washed rind raw milk cheese.

Each wheel is made in jura in the foothills of french alps, just north of geneva. The cheesemaking commences with the curds left from making comte from the morning milking of montbeliardes heritage cows.

A layer of bourgogne pinot noir lees covers the first layer. Then curds from milk from the afternoon milking of the same cows are placed over the grape lees to create a second layer over the morning curds. The wheels are then pressed, the rind is washed and the wheels are aged to perfection. It tastes like the love child of farmstead muenster, queso fundito and raclette
