Cheese - Fontina Val d'Aosta 8 oz

This Italian delight is made only from the raw milk of cow's grazing in high altitude Alpine pastures. Aged for about 6 months in Lombardy, each wheel is brushed with olive oil or salted on alternating days. With a semi-firm texture, this fontina has a pale yellow color and a nutty, almost fruity flavor. This cheese is not only excellent on cheese boards but also melts surprisingly well and makes for a great gooey topping on many baked dishes.

Ingredients & Storage Tips

Ingredient(s): Raw cow's milk, salt, rennet
Storage Tips: Refrigerate any cheeses and meats in a drawer close to where most of the produce is kept. After each time that you slice the cheese, re-wrap it with fresh plastic wrap to extend the shelf life. While some chefs will freeze a slice of blue and then grate it over a salad before serving, Chef's Mandala doesn't recommend freezing cheeses in general.
