For more than one and a half centuries and up to the present day, this cheese has been made in village dairies. The flavor is mild and nutty, and the cheese has its famous cherry-sized holes. These eyes are formed as bacterial cultures release carbon dioxide during the ripening process. The texture is semi-firm, and the taste is slightly sweet and nutty, with a bit of a sharp finish. Emmental is great on sandwiches, a classic part of fondue, and of course an excellent snack.
