After three weeks of rehabilitative care in our cheese caves, these washed rind wheels emerge fudgy, funky, and at their peak of flavor.
Microscopic crystals on the rind juxtapose the interior’s fudgy, dense texture. While the paste is sweet and buttery, the rind will add a layer of funkiness for those seeking out a barnyardy thrill.
While some say Taleggio’s characteristic aroma stinks, we say it smells delicious.
