Genuine and rare Swiss cheeses for the quality-conscious gourmet
It is perseverance pure: For almost 30 years now maître fromager Rolf Beeler leads
the fight in his native country to support the high-quality, artisanal cheesemaking.
He is quite successful and finds more and more listeners and contributors.
The top Swiss gastronomy scene raves about his products, he is a common face in the
media and has created a new consciousness for traditional Swiss hard cheeses.
In order to accommodate the international clientele, Rolf Beeler introduced his SELECTION ROLF BEELER
at the international Slow Food Show “Salone del Gusto” in Torino (Italy) in 1998.
He personally selects all the cheeses, and they are accordingly affinated.
The SELECTION ROLF BEELER is also available in Germany, Italy and the United States.
All cheeses are handselected
From an economic point of view Rolf Beeler isn't a huge factor in the Swiss cheese industry.
Beeler is a rather small cheesemonger. That is exactly the key to quality. He handselects the cheeses.
Beeler knows a lot of very small dairies that work for him or with his recipes. Natural production is obvious,
raw milk a must. Because raw milk cheeses are simply better and healthier, a product
from mother nature that changes and gets better with age - just like fine wine.
Parmigiano vs. Sbrinz
Even with the larger wheels, Rolf Beeler guarantees the quality and the unique flavor. Beside the Emmentaler he firmly believes in the Sbrinz: "A well-aged Sbrinz takes on every Parmigiano Reggiano, it has the more complex flavor and is less salty." And with a smile he adds: "Don't forget: For centuries, the Italians used to transport the Sbrinz over the Alps to Italy. Some while ago, they got tired of travelling and just copied the Sbrinz. Thus, the Parmigiano was born!"
