A speciality of the Swiss canton called Vaud, a malakoff is a dome of a cheese mixture that sits atop a disc of bread. After frying, the outer crust and the bread become golden and crisp, while the cheese mixture inside becomes melted and creamy - a little like a fondue in a crust.

My first malakoff tasting occurred in 2004 at Thierry Saxe’s Café au Bon Vin in Chardonne. His recipe is a closely guarded secret, so this one is adapted from Marianne Kaltenbach<
