Blaues Wunder: a unique Swiss blue cheese

note: past centerfold cheeses and pairings are available on a limited, seasonal basis
Made with locally sourced milk from Simmental and red Holstein cows, Blaues Wunder is aged four weeks and has a bluish gray, dusky rind. Underneath lies the real wonder: instead of the crumbly, salty, sharp bite most often associated with classic blue cheeses, this one seduces with rich creaminess. Its soft, elastic interior is studded with savory blueness but never dominated by it.
Swiss Amselspitz: perfect pairing
We will also send you the ideal pairing for Blaues Wunder—a jar of Swiss Amselspitz elderberry jam. Serve them together or give them as a tasty gift.
Made by the Räber family at Küssnacht am Rigi, on the north shore of Lake Lucerne, the sweet, fruity, and slightly tart flavors of the elderberry jam pair lusciously with Blaues Wunder, balancing the rich, buttery characteristics of the cheese and emphasizing its subtle blue flavors.Photography by Elton Leo & Gregory Cherin
