The Italian Cheese Selection Box contains:
Creamy Gorgonzola Dolce (min 250g) is as indulgent as it gets; this example is smooth and totally sumptuous.
Robiola Alta Langa (min 300g) is a sumptuously soft but flavoursome cheese from Piedmont. This Robiola is made with three milks: cow, sheep and goat to give the cheese body and a long finish.
Taleggio DOP (min 200g) is the great Italian washed rind cheese. Its pronounced aroma gives way to a hearty, buttery flavour and creamy texture.
Pecorino Toscano Stagionato DOP (min 250g) is a wonderful nutty hard cheese made from sheep’s milk only in June and September.
Total weight: 1000g
The history of cheese itself can in some ways be tracked back to Italy. For instance, Pecorino has a heritage that goes back some 2,000 years, and there is evidence of the first trading of Taleggio in the 10th century. Read a brief history of Italian cheeses here.
