Tome des Bauges
The word “Tome” derives from “Toma”, which means “cheese made in the mountain pastures” in the Savoie dialect. La Tome des Bauges used to be a domestic cheese intended solely to a family’s own use. It was sold locally in market stalls and was also used as a trading currency. Nowadays it is a fully-fledged cheeseboard feature. La Tome des Bauges is closely linked to it region, the Bauges Mountains. At least 5 weeks maturing give it a diversified taste, ranging from milky to subtle woodland notes.
