Fribourg’s master-cheesemakers combine tradition with the love of a job well done. Every day in their cauldrons in villages in Bulle (Canton Vaud) and Fribourg (Canton Fribourg in west-central Switzerland) they process milk from local farms using traditional recipes. Those traditions have been handed down from generation to generation. Vacherin Fribourgeois’ nutty flavour and soft taste can be attributed to the historical processes, which ensures high-quality taste.
