Cheese - Taleggio 8 oz

This washed rind, semi-soft Italian cheese has a thin crust and strong aroma. Invented over 1,000 years ago, each square is brushed with salt water giving it a sticky, orange outer skin. With a creamy yet fruity and almost mineral tang, this "stinky" cheese is aged for about 2 months on wooden slabs. Overseas it is available both pasteurized and raw, but in the USA it's only imported pasteurized.

Ingredients & Storage Tips

Ingredient(s):Pasteurized cow milk, rennet (animal), salt, enzyme
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.

Flavors & Uses

For a cheese plate serve with a Manchego 12 month and Humboldt Fog or Kunik. Or pair with a Gorgonzola Dolce, Parmesan Reggiano or Sottocenere with Truffles. Sides that work include dried Turkish figs, pears, crackers, olives and roasted walnuts on a cheese plate or melt taleggio as a cooking ingredient on top of a nice mac and cheese.
