The Swiss classic Appenzeller inspires the recipe for Alpha Tolman. Alpha has a dense texture and smooth paste which melts beautifully. When young, Alpha Tolman is milky, nutty and a bit fruity and as it ages it develops deeper oniony, beefy notes. It is made using traditional Alpine methods of cooking and pressing the curds to achieve a tight, elastic, smooth texture. Like all of Jasper Hill's cheeses, Alpha's name is a nod to the history of Greensboro. Alpha Tolman was a pioneering dairy farmer in Greensboro.
