Tomme de Savoie - semi hard cow's milk cheese. 1 lb/454 gr, France. An ancient mountain French cheese from the Savoie, made in winter when the herdsmen have returned from the summer pastures. Don't be put off by the appearance of the rind. Inside, the pale yellow cheese with its few small holes will be firm, yet supple with a gentle flavor hinting at meadow flowers, milk and walnuts.
