Friends, meet the King. It is an honor to have his appearance here on this humble blog. Coming to us all the way from the French Alps, birthed from Tarentaise cows in the summer of 2009, he is here to show us how it is done. He teaches us how one juggles the responsibility of being widely referred to as the King of Gruyere, the stress of Trans-Atlantic travel and the worries of being mis-handled. I am pleased to say that he is the luckiest wheel of his batch, having made it over to us for some truly royal treatment. Bon Apetit!
