Raw cow's milk cheese rubbed with flowers and aged for over 60 days.
We think the this is truly the most beautiful cheese in the world! Alp Blossom is a semi-hard cow’s milk cheese that is coated in a confetti of 13 difference dried summer flowers and herbs from the surrounding Alpine Mountain meadows. A delicate dusting of cornflower, marigold, rose petals, lavender, chervil, and marjoram (to name a few) make it the most well-dressed cheese you’ve ever set your eyes on!
Alp Blossom is produced at a cooperative creamery in Austria and made from milk of animals of small farms who have grazed in high mountain pastures. The cheese is aged for about 6 months and then shipped just across the border to Germany where the floral coating is applied by hand.
Similar to Comte but with a sweeter finish, the interior paste is beefy, savory, and nutty. A glass of Grüner Veltliner would be the perfect pair with this little beauty.
