When it comes to cheese, Le Marechal is the new kid on the block. In the early 90's, cheese maker Jean-Michel Rapin created a cheese that was meant to be different from Swiss Gruyere. He named if after is grandfather, who was a blacksmith, because it shared his "original and robust character".
Le Marechal is a raw milk Swiss cheese that shares the nutty flavour of typical Swiss made cheeses. But unlike Swiss Gruyere and Appenzellar, La Marechal has a melt in your mouth texture and a simple yet rustic flavour. The rind is rubbed with herbs as the cheese ages, giving it a subtley spicey, almost floral taste. Not only is Le Marechal delicious, but its incredibly healthy too- the cows are fed flaxseed flour, making their milk rich in Omega-3.
Le Marechal is an amazing table cheese, and does really well in cheese sauces. Serve it with figs or fig spread, olives, and a good dry white wine.
