Main Features


The world-famous Emmental and Gruyère cheeses come from a sandstone cave.

Deep under the rocks, 50,000 cheeses are left to ripen for more than 300 days.

Photographer Markus Bühler-Rasom went to investigate the making of this delicacy and took portraits of farmers, cheese-makers and the "cavemen" who are behind the classic recipes.
