Baked Vacherin Mont d'Or Recipe

by Maison Morand

Mont d'Or is a type of cheese that originates from the Jura region of France, specifically from the Haut-Doubs plateau. It is a soft, creamy cheese with a slightly nutty flavor and a distinct aroma.

Here is a recipe for preparing Mont d'Or cheese:

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • 1 Mont d'Or cheese 
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and thinly sliced and/or rosemary springs
  • 1 tablespoon white wine (optional)
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Crusty bread, boiled potatoes and some cold-cuts, to serve


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F.
  2. Remove the wooden lid and all plastic wrapping from the Mont d’Or cheese, then return it to its wooden box.
  3. Use a sharp knife to make several small incisions in the top of the cheese. Stud the top of the cheese with sprigs of rosemary, and/or garlic slices into the cuts.
  4. Drizzle the white wine (if using) over the top of the cheese, then season with black pepper.
  5. Put the lid back on the box and wrap well in foil. 
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes. The cheese should be melted throughout and the skin should be darkening. Take off the foil and lid, then break the skin to reveal the warm melted cheese beneath. 
  7. Serve immediately with crusty bread, charcuterie and boiled potatoes.
