CHF 49.00 / ex.

The book “The Universe of Tête de Moine AOP” is available in French, German and English.

Published by Editions D+P SA

Once upon a time there was a cheese like no other, a cheese small in size but the heir to a great tradition. A cheese you can hold in one hand and which only releases its flavours under the pressed embrace of a blade. This is because this semi-hard texture the colour of ivory is not cut with a knife. It is pared and then tasted in the form of a delicate cheese floret or rosette.

This book charts the odyssey of Tête de Moine, from its origins in Bellelay to its established position in the global cheese market. Published to mark the 20th anniversary of Tête de Moine being awarded the Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée then protected status, this elegantly designed reference work paints a portrait of this characterful cheese. In words and images it recounts the amazing story of this successful cheese. It is a journey to the Tête de Moine region, illustrated with a gallery of exceptional portraits and landscapes by the talented photographer Pierre Montavon.
