When traveling abroad we see the ordinary as well as the extraordinary. Each town has selected their own landmark, each farmer their own land. But what most places abroad have in common is that each region proudly creates their own original cheese. Each region in Italy is known for its surroundings, what they grow and what their milk-producing animals consume. Based on the environment that surrounds them, a cheese may contain a saltier flavor or even that nutty aroma and aftertaste that sets the blend above the rest. Today we will explore some regional cheeses from Italy that are widely available for consumption in America. If you can’t travel to satisfy your cheese craving, why not bring the International flavors home to re-create Italian dishes or add regional Italian flair to American classics.
