A cheese with my name on it. Literally.

Remember when I was in Switzerland? I never did get to the second part of that post - wow, I wonder what happened? Life, probably. Anyway.

We got to do our very own Emmenthaler Cheese - right there in Emmenthal valley - and a few weeks ago, it was delivered to my house! It had been stored in Switzerland to mature properly and now that it's done, it's done. L-O-V-E-L-Y!!

Thank you for posting the photos of where the cheese was made. Did they have custom molds for imprinting peoples' names?

Anne said...

Shady Gardener - no, you just wrote your name on the label, and they pressed it onto the cheese. Rather low-tech :)

Åh, vad jag får reslust. Förresten: Titta över till mig om du vill avge ett nyårslöfte.

I rather like the dour looking man in charge of cutting the curds.
