Things that taste good aren’t usually kind to your waistline, but Tomme de Savoie is made from skimmed cow’s milk. It’s a semi soft mild cheese with a gentle slightly salty, slightly earthy, nutty taste and you can sometimes get a flavour of grass if the cheese was made in summer. The rind can be bitter, so just dive into the lovely stuff inside.
What with? Tomme de Savoie is produced in the Rhones-Alpes so naturally goes well with a CÃ´tes du Rhone red like Mazets Saint Victor. Or eat it with a baguette, charcuterie and pear and dream of summer picnics in the meadows of the Alps.
