This famous cheese is a favorite in many recipes for its mild flavor and its distinctive look.

This famous cheese originated in Switzerland, though in that country it is referred to as Emmentaler, which is a slightly different cheese.

In the United States, as in Switzerland, this is a cooked-and stirred-curd cheese that is salted after it has been lightly pressed.

The large holes (or "eyes") in this cheese are a result of carbon dioxide that is created by the introduction of certain bacteria.
