Gruyere – Emmi
Le Gruyere is one of the most famous classic cheeses. What many people do not know is that Le Gruyère has been crafted since the 12th century using the same recipe. Unlike a lot of historic cheeses that are now made in factories Gruyere is still made through small scale production. More than 160 creameries in small villages throughout a designated area in Switzerland continue to use traditional cheese making methods. Local farmers feed their cows a naturally sustainable diet of pasture grass in the summer and hay in the winter. Each cheesemaker pours fresh milk supplied twice a day from nearby farms into copper vats to impart the unique, complex character that connoisseurs learned to love. Perhaps knowing how the Gruyere is made can’t make it taste any better that it does, but it does bring a sense of awe when we eat it. $4.50/100 grams.

We can only accept Canadian orders
Our online store is set up to allow you to browse our European Pantry shelves from the comfort of your home. It also enables you to pre-order and make arrangements for pick-up or drop-off in our delivery areas. We strive to keep the prices listed on our online store current but as a small retailer it is impossible for us to be 100% accurate for the 1000+ products we list. Furthermore, package weight variations for meat and cheese products make it impossible to provide accurate fixed prices.
Therefore, as you shop your “total order” will be an APPROXIMATE total. After you submit your order, we will communicate any changes in pricing as well as the actual prices of weighed items. You will then be able to confirm your order and arrange payment. Thank you for shopping with us! We hope it is a pleasant experience. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about our products or our ordering process.
