Toma di Gressoney cheese
Toma di Gressoney is an unpasteurised cows’ milk cheese from Gressoney Saint-Jean and Gressoney La Trinité. Because the area is at a high altitude (2,200 metres or above), it is only produced only in the summer months.
The cheese is a typical Alpine ‘toma’ made with evening milk with a smooth, slightly oily, grey to reddish-brown rind. It has a pale yellow interior and is round in shape. Its height can vary from 5-12 cm and the diameter is from 20-20 cm. It weighs between 3 and 5 kg.
Nowadays Toma di Gressoney tends be sold fresh for convenience, but there is an attempt to encourage producers to allow the cheese to mature, as was the tradition. If it is aged for 3 months, it has an aroma of moss and mushrooms and a flavour of pepper and vanilla, with a Parmesan aftertaste. However, the ideal maturation period is about 18 months.
