Day 660 : How to Save / How to Splurge Dispatch #39

Looking for a fabulous cheese to splurge on to pair with a nice bottle of bubbly to ring in the holiday season?
Well look no further than the Swiss shining star of the season -- Vacherin Mont d'Or -- only available from October till April. Crafted in the Jura Valley with winter cow's milk, this soft cheese is wrapped in a round of local spruce. The usage of winter milk means that the cows are only allowed to eat straw and indoor food, nothing from grazing in the mountains at or above 2,297 feet. Soft and running with nutty, hay notes and a warmth and roundness of flavor that makes this cheese a special holiday treat that you can't resist. At $39.99 a round at Murray's, this sure is a seasonable splurge that you won't be disappointed you indulged in!
