Asiago Italian Cheese


One of the best-kept secrets of Italian cuisine is the asiago cheese. This semi-hard cheese is made from cow’s milk and is delicious. Asiago is surprisingly versatile and can uplift any Italian recipe to a new level. The best thing about it is that it is available as fresh and aged. Fresh asiago looks white and has a soft texture and mild flavour.

As the ageing process increases from four months to two years, the cheese takes on a crumbly texture and acquires a sharp and spicy taste. Fresh asiago can be eaten on crackers or put in pasta and sandwiches. The best way to use aged asiago is to grate it and add it to dishes like pasta, risotto, salads, and bread.
