Cheese of the Day: April 8 – Alpha Tolman

ACS CCP® Pat Polowsky presents Alpine Saturday:

Today on Alpine Saturday: Alpha Tolman from Jasper Hill.
Alpha Tolman is inspired by cheeses such as Appenzeller. It’s a cooked/pressed-curd cheese, as is the custom for Alpine cheese. This, combined with its moderate levels of acidity, lead to an elastic texture perfect for eating as a table cheese or melting in a cooking applicationQuick Facts
Milk: raw cow
Format: 22 pound wheel
Age: 8-12 months
Rennet: traditional
The flavor of Alpha Tolman ranges from buttery, fruity, and nutty to meaty and brothy.

Fun fact: Alpha Tolman is made at JH’s satellite facility, the Vermont Food Venture Center (“a facility designed to incubate value-added projects and enrich our agricultural economy”) and then aged at the Cellars at Jasper Hill.
