Gruyère cheese

Gruyere cheese is a yellow cheese made from cow's milk. It was originally made in Switzerland and is named after the village of Gruyères in Switzerland.

Gruyere cheese is a hard, slightly salty and piquant cheese. When fully aged (three to twelve month) there tend to be small holes and cracks unlike the more famous Emmentaler cheese. It is generally a pricy cheese (US??).
