I was skeptical about the "holy grail" hype, but we were not disappointed by this infinitely complex cheese. Notes of mushrooms and wine customary of the finest bloomy rind cheeses, with a zestiness that is almost cheddar-like (verging on feta), and totally unique notes of evergreen trees (there is a small piece of spruce bark in the cheese in addition to the wrapping). I recommend letting the whole wheel come to room temperature before baking it according to the prep directions in the blog article on the Tomme website, as this will preserve the luxurious creamy texture of the cheese and it won't require extra baking time over the 10-15 minutes they recommend. The more we ate of this, the more the fathomless depths of flavour continued to unfold. A truly enigmatic cheese experience. We'll be back for another wheel next year for sure!!!
Enjoyed the cheese, very creamy and tasty. Great nose as well. Took a little longer to prepare than I thought but worth it in the end!
Super gooy and delicious, definitely will order again next year, maybe get a few!
This was such a lovely experience to share with the whole family. The excitement of sharing this treat together was really worth the wait!
.We totally enjoyed it. Very delicate. . Our only suggestion would be to take it out of the fridge well ahead of time, as it took much longer than expected to warm through, as we started cold from the fridge.
