FEATURED PRODUCTS Trentingrana DOP Trentingrana DOP is a 100 percent Italian cheese made using only milk, rennet and salt. It is produced in Trento, a region characterized by immense valleys, vast mountain forests and pure water resources. This mountainous area of northern Italy is known for its great passion for gastronomic culture and the uniqueness of its products. The milk used to produce this cheese comes from cows that are healthy and strong, mainly the Brown Alpine breed. Once processed, the cheese is aged for a minimum of 18 months. During this time, the cheese is ripened in the dairy for the first nine months.

Le Gruyère AOP Reserve Matured for at least 10 months, Le Gruyère AOP Reserve has the same pedigree as real Swiss Gruyère produced in western Switzerland for more than 900 years. Rich in flavor and packed with nutrients from the milk of cows grazing in pristine pastures, Le Gruyère AOP Reserve has a more assertive and intensely aromatic character than its younger counterpart. It has a complex nutty, buttery taste with a firm, slightly crumbly texture. It’s perfect for everyday eating and at home in fondue or any recipe that calls for a great melting cheese. Today, anyone can label a

cheese “Gruyère,” but Le Gruyère AOP Reserve is the real deal, tightly upholding the tradition of the cheese-making process, the regions where it is produced, and the strict guidelines followed by the dairy farmers, cheese makers and affineurs. Pure, unpasteurized milk is gathered from 170 farms and brought to expert cheese makers to produce 80-pound wheels, which are then aged in local cellars. Only the wheels passing the highest standards are allowed to be sold as Le Gruyère AOP. Le Gruyère www.gruyere.com
