Forget everything you think you knew about the classic Swiss AOC cheese Vacherin Fribourgeois (Va-shrin Free-bour-jwa). Only one person makes wheels like this and that’s Marc-Henry Horner, the master cheesemaker at the dairy Marsens-Vuippens. Horner has become a legend for resurrecting the original production style after finding an old photo from 1945 alluding to its existence. What captured him then is evident in the same wheels he produces today: an oozing, washed, undulating rind; dense, supple paste with small sporadic eyes; and the spirit of a recipe that can withstand the ages. Local Fribourg cow’s milk is collected throughout late spring and summer while they’re feeding on fresh meadow grasses and wild flowers. The result is a poignant paste that echoes of fruity dried peaches and tangy swiss.
