'Handeck' – Surface Ripened Comte–Style Cheese – 170g

This is a hand crafted washed rind cow's milk cheese that is produced using the same methods as a typical Swiss mountain style cheese. It is delicately aged on cedar wood planks adding robust flavors to the cheese. It is a drier hard cheese with very rich and complex flavours and nutty overtones.  It pairs well with red wines such as Pinot Noir and also dark roasted beers.

Favourite cheese

This is the closest thing we have found to the German Bergkase (mountain cheese). Reminds me of going to the market to pick up a bottle of red wine, a crusty farmer’s loaf, and a chunk of crumbly German cheese, and then finding a spot on the bank of the Rhine for lunch.

Perfect for topping a salad

This cheese is firm and has a slightly salty flavour. Love it shredded on my salads, especially when paired with honey smoked nuts.

Perfect for pairing

We love Gunn's Hill but this is our favourite cheese by far. Cait recommended it and it doesn't disappoint. It's a bit of a drier cheese but is a great addition to a cheese plate. Paired well with Niagara Baco Noir.

A bit of France from Ontario

C'est si bon! All the cheese from Gunn's Hill is exceptional. Handeck's deep flavour is welcome on a cheeseboard, in an omelette, melted on a Reuben...or in a croque monsieur!
