Tomme de Grosse-Île

Name:
Tomme de Grosse-Île

Type :
Artisanal made
Semi-soft cheese, mixed rind
Non-pasteurized cow’s milk

Made with milk from Brown Swiss cows partly fed with marsh hay, Tomme de Grosse-Île is a non-pasteurized semi-soft cheese. This surface-ripened cheese lasts longer than a soft cheese. Its brushed rind and its uniform texture with small cavities bring a woodsy flavour with a slightly acidulous and fruity taste.

 The Île-aux-Grues cheese factory named that cheese Tomme de Grosse-Île as a memorial to the rich history of Grosse-Île. The original logo shows Grosse-Île and its well-known Celtic cross with the archipelago of Île-aux-Grues as a background. Moreover, colours surrounding the picture evoke the Irish flag: green represents Irish Catholics; orange refers to English Protestants; and white symbolizes the hope for peace between both
