The Italian Tour Cheese Plate
Product ID: 51100PH
Diverse, regionally specific, countless - these are the words that best describe the cheeses of Italy. While many Italian cheeses never make it out of Italy, recently an increasing number of beautiful cheeses have made their way to our shores. The collection includes: Rochetta - from the Piedmont region of Northern Italy. Soft luscious "paglia" -style cheese, so named for the beds of straw upon which it is aged. Ricotta Salata - From the island of Sicily. A gentle sweet-n-salty cheese for cooking or snacking. Parmigiano-Reggiano - from Reggio-Emilia. Called the King of Italian cheese - undisputedly one of the best cheeses of the world! Mountain Gorgonzola - From Piedmont, where we started this journey. One of the most beloved blues in the world. Contains approximately 2 lbs of cheese (approximately 8 oz of each cheese). Zabar's may substitute cheeses of greater or equal value according to availability. Requires overnight shipping.
