Risler Raclette Cheese from St. Gallen, Switzerland, 1/4 square piece, 3.5 lbs.
Risler cheese is hand crafted by master cheese maker Christian Oberli at Kaserei Oberli at more than 2000 feet elevation. The result is an Alpine style cheese, made with pasteurized milk and hand washed for four months. Kaeserei Oberli is located in beautiful canton St. Gallen, close to Wil. The milk comes from grass fed cows from 30 dairy farms in the area of Wil. The flavor is described by the cheese maker as custard, yogurt and garlic, with a long finish. Its paste is firm, dense and flaky, speckled with protein crystals.
The quarter square is about 3.5 lbs.
We recommend the square shape to our customer that use a raclette grill. The cheese is easy to slice for the raclette dishes.
