Not unlike Emmentaler, this yellow-golden cheese from Norway has a subtle and slightly nutty, mildly salty flavour and is Gouda-like in its consistency.
The ideal buffet cheese, Jarlsberg is becoming increasingly popular and can be found in American, Australian and even Japanese food shops.
What with? Great in sandwiches and a brilliant cooking cheese, Jarlsberg will melt beautifully and give your Macaroni cheese a little extra twist. It's perfect melted on a slice of toast or with some ham on bread- all you need to add is a cold beer.
