TIPS FROM CHEF TO CHEF

01.  Cheese has a superior taste and excellent melting qualities – and tastes great even when cooling down. Cheese is made from fresh cow’s milk with no added flavourings. Cheese is an excellent source of protein.

02. The higher the fat content, the better the cheese will melt. Edam is comparatively high in fat.
