There’s more to Swiss cheese than just the holes.
Swiss is a mild flavoured cheese that has a sweet and nutty taste, and shiny, pale yellow appearance.
Said to date back to as early as 1300 in the Swiss region of Emmental. The term Swiss cheeese is actually a phrase coined to describe many varieties of Swiss Emmenthaler.
When you think Swiss cheese do you automatically picture hole-y cheese? These holes are also known as eyes, so a Swiss without eyes is called blind. As a rule of thumb, the larger the holes, the more pronounced the flavour.

Cheese truth #5: Cheese makes everything better!
When assembling a cheese tray, take 2 or 3 varieties of cheese – like cheddar, mozzarella, and Monterey Jack – and arrange on a platter with fruit and crackers.
Serve ripened cheeses at room temperature because cold can mask their flavours. To temper cheese, remove it from the refrigerator 30-60 minutes before serving, depending on the hardness of the cheese. Leave the cheese in a fresh, well-ventilated area and cover with a damp towel or plastic wrap to prevent drying.
