Emmental

secret de fromage #175:
The holes in Emmental are called eyes, and we think they’re for you.

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.
