Gruy猫re cheese is a hard cow's milk cheese named for the Swiss town where it originated in the 12th century. Gruy猫re is a raw milk cheese, similar to Emmentaler, or 'Swiss' cheese, with a higher milkfat (45%) content.

(There is also a processed cheese made in France called Gruy猫re, that is made with natural Gruy猫re blended with fresh cheese).

Gruy猫re is made in rounds of 60 to 100 pounds, about 2 feet around and 4 inches thick, and is aged for 10 to 12 months. The cheese has well spaced holes, a golden brown color and a nutty, full flavor. Gruy猫re is actually more popular in Switzerland than 'Swiss' cheese itself.

Gruyere, Gruy猫re cheese.
