Tome des Bauges is a semi-hard cheese made from unpasteurized cow's milk, either whole or semi-skimmed, produced in the mountainous Savoie region in France since the 17th century. Since the cows from the area (the Tarine, Abondance and Montbeliarde breed) feed exclusively on grass and hay, Tome des Bauges has a woody, earthy aroma and a full taste of mushrooms, grass, cream and butter.

It is pressed, salted and matured for at least five weeks before it is ready for consumption and develops its characteristic fuzzy brown mold, often called 'cat hair'. 

Pair this yellow cheese with light white wines or sliced pears which perfectly match its flavors.
