FORMAGGI

  Fiore di bufala: Lombardia           Unusually produced in the area of  Bergamo this small, fresh an delicious fiore di bufala is a great alternative to fresh chevre or fromage blanc. Because buffalo milk is so rich in butterfat, the texture is smooth and creamy. Fresh and simply made, flavors are straightforward and comforting: rich, buttery, and with a hint of hay or grass Gorgonzola dolce D.O.P: Piemonte              Creamy, melting and spreadable, it is the best known version of Gorgonzola on the market. Guffanti's Gorgonzola is distinguished for the great care with which it is produced, sorted and aged. parmigiano reggiano “vacche rosse”: emilia romagna    The milk of the red cow has higher butterfat content and contains more protein allowing a longer period of aging, requiring a minimum of 30 months, compared to the 24 month. Its unique nutty, fruity, grassy flavor is richer than most Reggianos and its texture is somehow creamier, although aged longer. Taleggio latte crudo  D.O.P: Lombardia     Due to the different production methods and ingredients used, this particular Taleggio differs from the classic version and more closely reflects the thousand-year-old tradition of the valley where this cheese comes from. Produced with raw milk from other small farms situated in Valtaleggio, it is processed in the local farmers cooperative. This is where the milk of two milkings is left to cool and then heated to the working temperature (but not pasteurized) and processed with the addition of lactic cultures. This Taleggio has a very rough pinkish rind, while the interior is very creamy near the sides and more crumbly in the middle. It has a pronounced, slightly sour but very mild taste, and the raw milk processing conserves all the fragrances of the grassy mountain pastures Epoisses de Bourgogne                                                      is a soft cow’s milk cheese produced by Jacques Hennart in the village Époisses, France.  Commonly called as Epoisses, the cheese has creamy, chewy and firm texture. With a distinctive soft red-orange color, it is categorized as a smear-ripened cheese washed in marc de Bourgogne. Pecorino crosta nera  di pienza Toscana             This cheese is produced in the Orcia Valley from sheep’s milk cooked at 30-32° centigrade. It is a very simple and young kind of cheese. Its paste is white and flaky, and its taste is dry and unique.
