Word of The Week

il formaggio - cheese

Oh yes, the Italians love their formaggio. I didn't eat much of it at before moving to Italy, but my cheesy horizions have widened significally during my time here. I'm having an especially cheesy few weeks, eating more formaggio than normal - at the moment there are four different types in my fridge, which is a record for me! This Asiago is named after the area it was originally produced in (today other areas including parts of Veneto also produce it) - up amongst the mountains of Trentino.

Asiago cheese is one of my Italian favourites, but I'd kind of forgotten about it. High time to get back to Italy for a visit, perhaps!
