CHALLERHOCKER made by Walter Rass (Tufertschwil, Switzerland) — A firm, pasteurized cow’s milk cheese. The name means “sitting in the cellar” which is exactly how it ages. Its special wash of wine and spices during aging gives the cheese its unique taste. Close in style to traditional Appenzeller, this takes on a more earthy, butter nature reflecting Walter’s variation of the recipe and the flora of his cellar.
