TWO MORE CHEESES


This week I've got Asiago fresco [in front] which is creamier than the aged Asiago. I like all types of Asiago because it is a cheese which goes well with most other flavours and it doesn't crumble whatever you do to it. The second cheese is a piece of smoked treccione, which means "big braid" [as in hair] as the whole cheese is made in that shape. I'm not a lover of smoked cheeses but this one is growing on me!

That smoked cheese looks delicious. But like Sally, cheese is off the menu for me at the moment. I am on a diet!!!

Are the Italians fond of English cheese, out of interst? Do they sell our Cheddars and Stilton?

Hi, Sally. Are you in training for your adventure? I can't believe you need to diet! Hi, Gleds. Oh, I like cheese that is supposed to be crumbly but I hate cheese that falls apart when you stick cocktail sticks in it! Hi, Cherie. I can't believe you need to diet, either! Hi, Ellee. No, you can't get Brit cheeses here. When I have brought Stilton over it has been loved but otherwise they don't go for our cheeses.

Ooooh.... chesse ... drool. I love the various Asiago varieties I have tried but am yet to experience the world of treccione - it sounds divine.

Our town has a population of about 3000 (plus all the tourists) and a second gourmet deli has just opened - and it looks like the fron line of competition will be cheese. I have dies and gone to heaven. I will ask if they can get me some treccione :-)

Hi WL...I am not a lover of smoked cheese at all...and I also prefer Italian and French cheeses over British ...but Arni love British Chedders and the stonger the better.

Yes your right, I don't believe for one minute that Sally has to diet..she does so much ..gym, walking etc etc!!

Looks cheeselicious.

Hi, mg. You seem to be well served for gourmet food there, then. Do let me know if they get you a treccione. That's a good word, Dr CW!
