Scharfe means "sharp" and Maxx means "extra", so it's no surprise that this Alpine Swiss cheese is full of flavor. Meaty, mushroomy, salty, nutty, creamy with a balance of sweetness, Scharfe Maxx melts beautifully making it ideal for using in gratin, grilled cheese, mashed potatoes, cheesey grits and fondue. Scharfe Maxx is a washed rind cheese, making it a bit stinky, similar to Appenzeller and Raclette.
Take your cheese eating to the Maxx and try this cheese today! Enjoy with a bold red wine, a funky hard cider or a Saison beer.
