Taleggio is a ripened Italian cheese named after the caves of Val Taleggio. It’s one of the oldest soft cheeses produced in every autumn and winter. During cheese making, the milk is brought to the lab and kept on the wood shelves in the chambers as well in caves according to tradition. In order to prevent it from a mould infestation, the cheese is washed with seawater once a week. The maturation takes 6 – 10 weeks forming a thin crust.

The taleggio cheese has a taste that is relatively mild with an unusual fruity tang. Taleggio can be served grated on salads. Since it melts well, it can be used in risotto or on polenta.
