Preparation

  • For the pepper rosettes: Set the Tête de Moine in place on the Girolle. Crank the pepper mill a few turns to grind pepper onto the surface of the cheese. Carefully rotate the blade along the Tête de Moine AOP to form rosettes.
  • For the cumin rosettes: Follow the same process as for the pepper rosettes. Before scraping, lightly press the cumin seeds into the cheese.
  • For the horseradish rosettes: Peel the horseradish with a vegetable peeler. Use a fine gauge vegetable grater to grate a small amount of horseradish onto the Tête de Moine AOP. Scrape the Tête de Moine AOP to form rosettes. This process helps the horseradish flavor to penetrate the cheese. Arrange the rosettes on a tray and serve with baguette.
