Buffalo Truffle

This is one of the most expensive cheeses, due, of course, to the high price of black truffles which cost over $ 300 per pound. The truffles for Willi's Buffalo cheese are from the vicinity: Stephan Hilber is a dog breeder but in his pastime searches for truffles with his two Lagotto dogs "Snoozy" and "Quali". Since the constant supply restaurant chefs need cannot be guaranteed, Hilber contacted Willi Schmid, and the idea for the Buffalo Truffle was born.
The shaves make up for 4% in the paste. There are absolutely no other (artificial) flavors added. Shortly after its invention, Buffalo Truffle won the Swiss Cheese Award in 2010.

INGREDIENTS: Thermized buffalo milk, salt, rennet, cultures, truffle shaves, olive oil (for smearing)
