About This Product
Tomme style cheese is a round, nutty tasting cheese, generally made on the same farm that you source the milk. Tomme cheeses require a mesophilic culture and a tomme cheese mould to form it. Tomme is not a difficult cheese to make, or an expensive one. A semi-soft cheese ranges in flavor and texture depending on the type of milk that you use with it. This is why there is so much variation! If you want a true tomme cheese, you are not only going to have one flavor and one texture, you can experience many!
With tomme cheese, you heat the milk to a lower temperature than most and press the curds into wheel shaped molds. This is where the tomme cheese mold comes into play. Ours even comes with a lid so that you can press down the curds easily. Not only does it work with to mold tomme cheese but you can use it to mold cheese of any type. Good cheese does not come from luck; it is the ingredients and the cheese mold itself that does it.
