soft yellow cheese

The Aosta Valley is the only region in Italy that produces Fontina cheese, made from the milk of cows that graze on the fresh herbs and wild flowers in the high Alpine meadows. Soft and supple and perfect for making fonduta, Fontina is a semi-cooked, straw-yellow cheese, characterized by its many tiny holes.
