Brezain is a semi-hard Raclette-style French cheese made from pasteurized cow’s milk. The cheese is produced in the region of Haute-Savoie, where it must mature for at least 5 months. Its name is derived from the word braisé, which means embers, referring to the method of smoking the cheese over beech and juniper wood, giving it a visually attractive amber colour and a unique flavour. Brezain has a creamy texture, while the flavours are nutty, smoky, and caramel-like. It’s recommended to melt it over potatoes, use it for fondues, sandwiches, or as a pizza topping.
