Eight centuries ago, in the Swiss Jura Mountains, monks of Bellelay Abbey had a sense of humor. Fashioning small cylindrical ''monk's head'' cheeses, they invented a machine, called a girolle, to thinly shave away layers from the top, exposing a bald spot. Made of raw cow's milk, these Semi-Hard cheeses have a dense texture and a seriously intense, fruity flavor.
