Prepare to be wowed by our extraordinary Taleggio cheese, a true revelation that deserves a prominent place on your cheeseboard. With its rosy and sometimes mould covered rind, Taleggio encases a lusciously fruity and silky paste that exhibits a delightful contrast. While the edges may showcase a breakdown, the paste remains textured and marshmallowy. This cheese has a distinct meaty and pungent aroma but don’t let that put you off the taste is surprisingly delicate and fruity.
Made from the raw milk sourced from several small local farms, this cheese is lovingly crafted by the village co-operative in the heart of Val Taleggio in Italy, the very region from which it derives its name. Handmade in small batches, it stands apart from its mass-produced counterparts, offering a truly exceptional experience.
It’s versatility extends beyond the cheeseboard, as Taleggio shines in various culinary applications. Melt it into creamy pasta sauces, incorporate it into gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, or create delectable flatbreads topped with this exquisite cheese and even better paired with wine! Its unique characteristics lend themselves perfectly to both savoury and sweet recipes, making it a delightful ingredient that adds depth and richness to your creations.
