This Northern Italian cow's milk cheese is a pantry staple. It is not trying to make the statement of its assertive cousin, the classic mountain cheese Fontina Val d'Aosta. This Fontina stays tried and true in its wheelhouse. Fontina is a 'Go To' cheese for almost every occasion and pairing. It is a great compliment with its nutty flavor and its semi-soft texture.
The cheese has a yellowish paste, with a mild flavor. At its most basic a table cheese, it can also be melted into sauces, thickly shredded over pasta or pizza, or pressed into a gooey grilled sandwich. The bouncy paste is a bit more supple,mild and sweet. It is a real mainstay and always performs perfectly.
Among the many pairings, that you can try, may we suggest fresh fruit and figs or dry salami.
We hand-cut and wrap this Italian cheese in wedges of 8 ounces and 1 pound.
Ingredients: pasteurized cow's milk, salt, rennet, enzymes.
