A good American cows' milk cheese, which was developed by Emil Frey at Monroe, New York State in 1892. He based it on the German cheese, Bismark Schlosskäse, which was imported - but always arrived in bad condition after its Atlantic crossing.

His creation was considered by most to be an improvement - being milder and less pungent. Its name came from a singing group admired by Frey and means 'wreath of song'.

It should be eaten young, when its taste is mellow and the centre creamy. See 'American Cheese'
