Tommes are a type of cheese typically made in the French Alps and Switzerland. We like tommes because they're one of the easier types of hard cheese to make and are therefore a wonderful hard cheese for a beginner. Tommes are hardy enough to allow for some errors during the aging process, unlike a finicky cheddar. Tommes can be made from cow's, ewe's, or goat's milk. This kit is a great value and provides you with all the ingredients you need to start making this delicious cheese in your home!
