Toma is a typical cheese throughout the Alps. It is originally produced with milk from cows grazing at high altitudes. Then the cheese is finally brought down to the valley in September to be aged from thirty days up to one year.
Toma is produced in both the Italian and French sides of the Alps, resulting in a wide range of different ingredients and different tastes.
The wheel normally reaches from four to five kilos.
Storing and Serving Toma Cheese
It is recommended to keep cheese on a higher shelf of the refrigerator, far from food with strong odours, in order to avoid absorption of unwanted tastes and smells. In fact, the best option is to store them in a food container with a lid to preserve cheese freshness and to protect them from moisture, odours and possible moulding in the fridge.
