FEATURES
Comté Bellecombe AOC is a semi-firm, unpasteurized, aged, raw, cow's milk cheese from the Jura region of France. Century-old techniques are used to make Comte, which is the most produced and consumed cheese in France. The flavor is complex, nutty and caramelized with a lingering but not sharp flavor. The combination of sweetness and saltiness give this cheese an intriguing flavor. Comte is traditionally sold in huge blocks and matures for a year before it is ready for sale, whereas this one is aged for 4 months in a 200 year-old military fort. Older wheels will have a rich, nutty, fruitier and more flowery taste. Pairs great with a glass of Chardonnay. Cut cheese, up to 8 lb.

CookingIt’s usually best not to cook truffles, as a little heat will release their aroma, but a lot of heat will destroy it. For best results, freshly grated or sliced truffles should be applied over a just-served, still-hot dish.
