Fontal is part of the Fontina family, a relative of the famous Fontina Val d'Aosta from Northern Italy. But Fontal isn't as fussy as its assertive cousin. This is a working cheese - one meant to serve any need, and do it well. Fontal is a 'Go To' cheese for almost every occasion and pairing.
The cheese has a semi-soft golden paste, with a nutty and mild flavor. At its most basic, a table cheese with crackers. But it's a great melting cheese for sauces, thickly shredded over pasta, pizza, or pressed into a gooey grilled sandwich. The bouncy paste is a bit more supple, mild and sweet. This mainstay always performs perfectly.
Among the many pairings, that you can try, may we suggest fresh fruit and figs or dried salami.
We hand-cut and wrap this Italian cheese in wedges of 8 ounces and 1 pound.
