The Red Witch is a Swiss cheese that was introduced to the US just a few years ago. It was created in Switzerland for Carnevale, a pre-Lent celebration in Switzerland that includes dressing up as demons, wizards and witches, not unlike our Halloween traditions! It is washed in brine as it ages and is also rubbed with paprika. With it’s deep red rind, along with a black and red label featuring the silhouette of a broomstick-riding witch, it’s very easy to see why it’s closely associated with Halloween. But this aromatic and extremely pleasant-tasting cheese is well deserving of year round attention. It is fabulous melted into macaroni and cheese.
