Cow's Milk Cheese
Fontal is a semi-firm cheese made in flat cylinders, with concave sides, and a thin rind that may be covered with brownish-red wax, or plastic. It has a mild, nutty flavor, that is almost sweet with a touch of tartness, but the flavor varies depending on who made the cheese. Some versions are tangier than others. The tang in the taste comes out particularly when the cheese is melted.
