Gruyere is a hard yellow, swiss cheese that originated from Swiss villages. The cheese’s flavor is sweet but slightly salty, with flavor that varies widely with age. Gruyere makes a great melting cheese, and is particularly suited for fondues. This cheese is described creamy and nutty when young, while becoming more assertive, earthy, and complex as it ages. It also tends to have small cracks with a slightly grainy texture.
