Formai de Mut
Mountain cheese from the Valle Brembana
Flat pressed cylinders of raw cow's milk, weighing between 8 and 12 kilos, Formai de Mut is a firm, dense cheese with the delicate taste of the high alpine pastures in the mountains ('mut') above Bergamo. The tastiest ones are made in the summer months when the cows are grazing at over 1260m. It's an essential ingredient in polenta Bergamasca.
