Now that the cold has officially arrived, I am ready to share with you one of my favorite ways to eat melted cheese!
Mont d’Or is a French cheese with an AOC* since 1981 in the region of Jura (very close to Geneva) it is often called “the holy grail of raw milk cheeses”!!!!
Here is my personal recipe for a Mont’Or:
You will need: (2-3 people)
- 1 Mont d’Or Cheese. Medium Size
- 4 cl or 1.5 oz of white wine (dry) or champagne
- 1 Garlic clove
1. Pre-heat you oven to 200°C or 392°F
2. Cover the base of the cheese with aluminum paper to avoid spills
3. Make some incisions in the cheese to let the wine get through and give flavor to it.
4. Add the white wine or champagne.
5. Cut some garlic in slices and insert it into the incisions you made before.
6. Wash you potatoes and put them inside an pot with cold water and bring to boil.
TIP: After boiling, potatoes are usually ready after 20min.
*AOC- In French it is Appellation d’Origine Contrôlé. Meaning that in order to be called Mont d’Or, it has to follow certain processes and be produced in a certain area.
