How to eat a Mont d’Or!

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:
