Comtomme is a firm, pressed cheese made from certified organic raw (thermized) cow's milk. It is matured for 90 days during which the cheese develops a coppery washed rind and golden ivory supple, melting paste. It has a lovely fruity flavour with a hint of crab apple and butter. The cheese is named after the village of Compton, or as they say, the tomme from Compton!
This is an award-winning cheese having been a finalist in the Canadian Cheese Grand Prix 2006 and 2009 Edition. Enjoy the cheese in cooking, salads and sandwiches. It goes well with both beer and wine.
