  • Fontina – Has a delicate, nutty, almost honeyed flavor, somewhat like a Swiss Gruyere but more buttery and sweeter. Great in fondues. When melted, the flavor is earthy, with a suggestion of mushrooms and a fresh acidity
  • Taleggio – The softest, creamiest member of the famous Italian Stracchino cheeses. Its rough, rosy crust (inedible), pale yellow interior, and rich and buttery, fruity, slightly salty flavor are what give Taleggio its individuality. Taleggio’s soft, incredibly flavorful interior is creamy in texture and has a pungent aroma
