Mauri Taleggio

  • POSTED ON 28 Mar 2019

Taleggio – a semi soft, washed rind Italian cheese with a thin orange crust, strong aroma & rich mellow flavour that's creamy, fruity & tangy.

Enjoy as a table cheese with a slice of crusty bread & a glass of fruity red like Pinot Nero or Merlot. It's mild flavour also enhances any dish where you would normally use cheese – mixed into polenta, risotto & pasta or added to a sauce for steak. For a vegetarian option, try melted over vegetables - think charred broccoli or baked potatoes. You can find Taleggio in the cheese fridge.
