||Tete de Moine is an old monastery-style mountain cheese whose name translates to monks head. Traditionally it is sliced horizontally with a girolle to create ruffled, very thin rosettes. Once the top part of the rind is taken off, it resembles the bald top of a monks head. The firm, dense texture, though not dry, makes it perfect for paper-thin slices. The flavor can range from very fruity and rich to pungent and very sharp.
