Käserei Tufertschwil


Chällerhocker (pronounced "holler hocker"), is an aged cow's milk cheese from Käserei Tufertschwil in the canton of St. Gallen, Switzerland. After many years of making the classic Swiss cheese Appenzeller, master cheesemaker Walter Raas longed to do something more unique. With a few tweaks of the recipe, including leaving the milk unskimmed, Walter created Chällerhocker. This complex addictive Swiss cheese is dense and smooth and tastes of brown butter, roasted cashews, and caramelized onions.
