Taleggio Cheese DOP 4.6 lb

Taleggio Cheese DOP 4.6 lb

Description

Taleggio is a smear-ripened Italian cheese named after the caves of Val Taleggio. It’s one of the oldest soft cheeses produced in every autumn and winter. During cheese making, the acidic milk is brought to the lab, and kept on the wood shelves in the chambers as well in caves according to tradition. In order to prevent it from mold infestation, the cheese is washed with seawater once a week. The maturation takes 6 - 10 weeks forming a thin crust. This cheese has been granted a PDO designation and contains 48% fat. The cheese has a strong smell, but its taste is relatively mild with an unusual fruity tang.

Suggestion: Taleggio is an excellent table cheese, it’s delicious when accompanied by fruits such as apples and pears. When grated on salads such as radicchio and rucola, it tastes like a wonder. Taleggio must be served at room temperature to fully bring out its taste and aroma. It is not necessary to cut away the rind, scraping it is sufficient.
