Cow's milk cheese with a soft texture, the flavor is sweet, buttery. Named after the valley of its origin, Taleggio is tradition incarnate. Its coarse rind is edible, and stands in great contrast to the creamy interior.
Taleggio cheese is a table cheese that can be eaten alone or cut into small triangles and served on a cold cuts platter without cutting away at the rind (it's enough just to scrape off the mold). But it can also be melted on pasta dishes, pizza pies, and risottos.
Country of Origin: Italy
Storage: tightly wrapped in parchment paper and kept in a food storage container or cheese keeper, taleggio cheese will last for 7-14 days in your fridge. It's important not to cover this cheese in plastic wrap, as doing so will prevent it from breathing and encourage the growth of undesired molds.
