The term Swiss Cheese is a generic name for cheese resembling Emmental that are made in the United States. Many of the Swiss cheese making traditions that are practiced in the US were brought to the country in 1880’s with the wealth of Swiss that immigrated during those years. Where Europeans refer to specific cheeses that have eyes in them by their given names these cheeses are simply referred to as Swiss style cheese in the US. We use of the term Swiss is to honor the cheese makers of the Swiss Alps and the US.
