You'll find cheese called Emmentaler that is made in France and the United States, but I find that the Swiss version is the best. The Swiss take their cheese seriously and control the recipes and process of making it closely. Emmentaler is only made around the region (or canton) of Bern.And why do Swiss cheeses have those unique holes or "eyes"? Read this short article, so next time your kid asks when you're making them a ham and Emmentaler sandwich, you'll know the answer.
