The superior quality milk from the lush pastures of the North Lombardy valleys on the slopes of the alps, has produced some outstanding cheeses and none moreso than the Taleggio PDO.
Taleggio PDO is the softest and creamiest of them all. It has been produced in the area for many centuries and is thought to be the oldest soft cheese in the world.
Taleggio possesses a unique velvet soft texture, empahtic fragrance and a lovely, rich buttery flavour with sweet notes and a hint of fruit.
These characteristics make it one of Italy’s most popular cheeses and its versatility is second to none. Taleggio is superb on its own with crusty bread or ciabatta and makes a great panino filler too.
Try it in risotto or with polenta dishes. Lovely in all kinds of salads or with vegetables. Taleggio is perfect as an antipasto cheese with cured meats or as a dessert cheese with honey, fruit and sweet compote or good jam.
For a supreme gourmet experience, try it with our truffle honey! It also shows off all its ooze-ability when grilled or melted.
