Although foreign to many of us, these cheese names (who would have thought I was referring to cheese?!) indicate a very unique origin, milk selection, cooking and refining processes, but most importantly some very particular tastes and flavours. If arriving from its original geographical production region, these varieties offer one of the most unique aromas to the palate.

A cooked crust type such as Taleggio will take your taste buds for an unforgettable journey of delicious and authentic tastes. The physical characteristics of Gratin will baffle you but the flavour will leave you speechless.
