We eat quite a lot of this stuff so decided to splash out on an expensive version. Tried against a less expensive supermarket version. This won hands down. Far too good for cooking. We just cut it into thin slices and put it in the mouth. As it heats up on the tongue the flavours develop and it slides meltingly down the throat. A sip from the glass to clear the pallet then try another slice.
There are so many great British cheeses these days but somehow Comté keeps me thinking as a Francophile. Beautiful cheese, nice maturity.
A delicious full-bodied cheese which arrived on time and well packed. Comte is as good for cooking as it is on the cheeseboard.
I ordered several weeks before Xmas so we did not have to visit busy shops. My order was delivered on Sunday 20th, and everything was in peak condition when I opened it on Xmas day. As we ended up with far fewer people than expected, we were worried about waste, but by finishing the ripest cheeses first the harder cheeses lasted quite well into the first week of January.
