Combinations and Recipes

An excellent table cheese, its an ingredient suited for many first and second courses. Ideal for enhancing polenta and savoury pies or for preparing traditional local recipes (i.e. bigoli pasta with pumpkin sauce, risotto all’Amarone) and pairs well with walnuts, pears and eggs.

For the sweeter taste of the Fresco variety, a fairly tart jam, such as citrus types, or a stronger tasting honey (chestnut, for example) is recommended.

It pairs nicely with light and fruity red wines (i.e. Bardolino and Valpolicella, red DOC wines from the hills of Verona).
