There’s more to Swiss cheese than just the holes.
Swiss is a mild flavoured cheese that has a sweet and nutty taste, and shiny, pale yellow appearance.
Said to date back to as early as 1300 in the Swiss region of Emmental. The term Swiss cheeese is actually a phrase coined to describe many varieties of Swiss Emmenthaler.
When you think Swiss cheese do you automatically picture hole-y cheese? These holes are also known as eyes, so a Swiss without eyes is called blind. As a rule of thumb, the larger the holes, the more pronounced the flavour.

When assembling a cheese tray, take 2 or 3 varieties of cheese – like cheddar, mozzarella, and Monterey Jack – and arrange on a platter with fruit and crackers.
Once you’ve ripped the package open, wrap cheese in kitchen wrap and place in a food bag to store it – this will ensure circulation of air to help it last longer.
Be careful to not store cheese with strong-smelling foods because the cheese will breathe in the odors and absorb it – this can alter the taste and spoil the cheese.
