Here is where I get my Swiss cheese. I grew up in the area so it reminds me of "home." I agree that supermarket Swiss is pretty bland. This cheese had a good full flavor.

They have one of my favorite French cheeses that I haven't been able to find in years!!

Gourmandise it comes in 2 flavors - Kirsh or walnut. Both are fantastic!

gourmet cheese, recipe

Gotta Share My eldest daughter purchased for me, for Christmas, two kinds of cheese with which I'm very familiar, an aged gouda, and a sharp cheddar. She bought them on line and I have to tell you that they are among the best cheeses I've ever eaten. There is a young lady in our office who also loves cheese. I gave her a sample of each, plus the brand, type and site address for the cheeses. I know we don't usually give out brand names here as we are not advertisers. But you have to take my word for it that these cheeses are for D.C. cheese aficionados. The cheddar isn't as salty as some, and doesn't have the little mineral crystals that I've come to love in aged cheddars. What it does have is a strong cheddar flavor that is wonderful, and a sharp bit like I have never had before. I ate too large a piece (the thickness of a Kraft single and about a three inch circle) and it cause a few taste buds on the tip of my tongue to swell from the high acidity. The tang is amazing. But this cheese is to be savored in small pieces. The gouda is full flavored and ripened at least three years, I would guess, because it does have significant mineral crystallization (like bits of salt crystals) and a rich flavor. If anyone wants to know what kind and what site, pm me and I'll share the info. Seeeeeeya; Goodweed of the North 3 stars 1 reviews
