Kaserei Tufertschwil | Challerhocker | Canton of St. Gallen, Switzerland

$32.00 Per Pound

Developed by master cheesemaker Walter Rass, Challerhocker (“sitting in the cellar” in Swiss) is made in the style of an Appenzeller, but with some nuances: added cream, changing the curd size and cooking temperature, and a special wash of wine, herbs and spices before being aged for about ten months. Sweet, nutty, and a little oniony, Challerhocker has the texture of a classic Swiss, dotted with holes, pliable and semi-soft, and it melts perfectly. Delicious on a cheeseboard, in a grilled cheese sandwich, in mac & cheese, fondue, or on any vegetable au gratin. The large wheels also feature a covering of lovely drawings of creepy kids enjoying huge blocks of cheese. What’s not to like?

When shopping for alcohol, we want to make sure you know:

  • Alcohol cannot be delivered outside of New York State so beer, wine, and spirits will be removed from your cart during checkout if an address outside of New York State is selected for delivery.
  • Stinky BKLYN reserves the right not to deliver alcohol to certain buildings.
  • Smith & Vine and Stinky BKLYN are separate businesses. Because of this, you'll see two different charges on your preferred payment method when your order contains both wine/spirits and food. But don't worry—we'll deliver your whole order at once and only charge you a single delivery fee.
