All about cheeses > Vacherin fribourgeois

A semi-hard gourmet cheese made in Switzerland from raw cow's milk. It is often confused with another cheese for France the Vacherin Mont d'Or. The cheese is made in the Fribourg canton of Switzerland where the Gruyère comes from.

The Vacherin Fribourgeois has a slightly acidic flavor, with a varying strength depending on the age and type. It is also often a basic component of cheese fondues, due to its ability to soften and melt at lower temperatures.
