Taleggio Cheese
Posted by Gordon Smith

A friend who had lived in Italy introduced me to Taleggio cheese, and it now makes regular appearances in my home. Yesterday, I opened a slice for my family's customary Sunday afternoon cheese munching, and it was gone within minutes.

This cow's-milk cheese originates from Val Taleggio in Bergamo, and it is listed on the EU's Protected Designations of Origin. Taleggio cheese is formed in squares. The rind is rose-orange colored, and it usually has spots of greenish mold. The paste is yellow and creamy, but not runny. As the cheese ages, the paste gets darker and the smell becomes more pungent. It is a slightly salty cheese, but generally mild. If you enjoy brie or camembert, you will love this cheese.
