secret de fromage #24:

Looking for the ultimate melty cheese? You can’t spell Emmental without M-E-L-T.

With a lightly sharp, slightly salty taste, Emmental is great on a sandwich or a burger, in an omelet, or as a surprise twist to macaroni and cheese. Try Emmental with a sweet white or light to medium red wine.
