Tomme literally means “wheel” or “round” of cheese. Tommes may come in various guises and milks from across France. This one is from the stunning mountainous region of Savoie and originated as a by-product of making large mountain cheeses such as Beaufort. Made from semi-skimmed milk, the flavour of Tomme de Savoie is clean, milky and buttery. The suede-like natural rind has an earthy aroma and is responsible for mushroomy notes in flavour. Enjoy with white Savoie wines.
