Abondance cheese is a traditional semi-hard raw-milk cheese made from the milk of the Abondance cow, a breed of cattle found in the Haute-Savoie region of France. The cheese is typically aged for about 3 to 4 months, during which time it develops a rich, nutty and fruity flavor with a slightly tangy finish. It has a smooth, dense texture and a natural rind that is typically yellow-orange in color. It is known for its distinct aroma and strong flavor, making it a popular choice for cheese boards and as a ingredient in cooking. The cheese is protected by an AOC (Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée) which guarantees its quality and authenticity. Abondance cheese is often paired with white wine or beer.
