Authentic Imported Italian Cheese Collection
This outstanding collection gathers three of Italy's most popular cheeses, and will prove invaluable in the 'Cucinas' of Italian food lovers everywhere. The historic and diverse cheeses in this collection will enable you to recreate some of Italy's magical and time-honored dishes in the comfort of your own home. It includes:
  • Montasio: Montasio has an intense full-bodied flavor that increases with age. A delicious mountain cheese from the northeastern-most part of Italy near the Austrian border. Serve with apples and pears.
  • Grana Padano Stravecchio Oro del Tempo: Stravecchio Oro del Tempo is a superior, 22-month aged Grana Padano produced by Agriform near Venice. This masterpiece compares beautifully with its better-known cousin Parmigiano Reggiano. The flavor of Stravecchio is intense and complex, with fruity overtones that evoke pineapple or strawberry, depending on the season. Like all precious things, every Stravecchio cheese is one of a kind, and each wheel is branded with a unique serial number. Agriform tests the quality of each wheel of Stravecchio every week until the twentieth month of aging. The end result of this rigorous testing process is that only the cheeses that deserve to become prime Grana Padano Stravecchio are stamped with the certificate of origin and guarantee. A true essential, Grana elevates a myriad of dishes, everything from antipasto to risotto, including dessert! (Try with drizzled honey or fine Balsamico).
  • Pecorino Romano: Pecorino Romano is Italy's oldest cheese, dating back to ancient Roman times. This hard sheep's milk cheese is typically aged for one year and used as a grating cheese. Zerto Pecorino Romano, like most Pecorino Romano made today, is made in Sardinia where land and sheep are abundant.
