This sampler features four cheeses that are typical of four distinct regions of Italy:
Please note that any item temporarily out of stock will be substituted with a similar item of equal value.
- Provolone Piccante: We love this Piccante version, which is rarely available in the U.S. and much more interesting than the mild Provolone most Americans have come to know. One of the great sandwich cheeses, Provolone Piccante is also an excellent melting cheese that is perfect in omelettes or atop a toasted baguette. (7.5 oz)
- Grana Padano Stravecchio: The original hard Italian cheese, Grana Padano is a firm, dry, fruity cheese from the Po Valley of Northern Italy. Stravecchio is aged for an optimal 20 months. Grate it over pasta, vegetables, or soup; or serve it as a table cheese drizzled with extra virgin olive oil. (7.5 oz)
- Mountain Gorgonzola: Italy's famous blue cheese comes from Lombardy. Made from cow's milk taken from local herds that graze on beautiful rolling pastures, no Italian Cheese Assortment would be complete without a cut of authentic Gorgonzola. (7.5 oz)
- Pecorino Toscano: This soft, sheep's milk cheese is made in the hills of Tuscany. It is young, sweet and springy. We find that this combination well represents the wide variety of flavors and textures found in Italian cheeses. (7.5 oz)
