Originating in the Alps, cheese fondue made use of ingredients readily available during the cold winter months – namely cheese, wine and coarse peasant bread. A crowd pleaser any time of year, our trio of European cheeses can be enjoyed separately or melted together for a unique balance of nutty, savory and buttery flavors. Simply melt in a fondue pot with dry white wine and serve with cubes of fresh, crusty bread – or add boiled potatoes, cornichons and sliced ham for an authentic Swiss experience.
Emmental: Traditional Swiss cheese produced in the central cantons of Switzerland, with a fresh, sharp flavor and nutty finish. (8 oz.)
Fontina: A grand, robust cheese with an assertive flavor and pungent aroma that make it a celebrated product of Italy's Val d'Aosta. (8 oz.)
Gruyère 1655: Named for the year the name "Gruiere" was first recorded, this Medaille d'Or award-winning cow's milk cheese is distinguished by its fresh creamy blast, bright fruity flavor and deep, structured nuttiness. (8 oz.)

- Use & Care
- The cheeses are shipped chilled with ice packs.
- Refrigerate the cheese upon receipt. It is best stored in a vegetable bin or container away from the refrigerator fan. We recommend leaving the cheese in the packaging as it comes to room temperature, to prevent oxidation, which may affect the flavor. Cut and set out only as much cheese as you plan to serve, returning the rest to the refrigerator.
- To experience the cheese's full flavor, serve at ambient temperature. For optimal flavor and texture, bring the cheese to room temperature for approximately 1 hour prior to serving.
- For best melting results, please follow the instructions on your fondue pot.
- Leftover cheese is best re-wrapped in parchment or waxed paper. Plastic wrap is not recommended. It is best to consume the cheese within one to two weeks of receipt.
- Emmental: Cow's milk, salt, rennet.
- Fontina: Cow's milk, salt, rennet.
- Gruyere 1655: Cow's milk, salt, rennet.
