tomino

soft cow's milk cheese

Rich, fresh cow's milk cheese, soft enough to be spread; made into a cylinder and sold sliced into multiples of six. It's often dressed with olive oil and herbs when fresh, or topped with spices; the cheeses are often fried or grilled as well (tomino da padella).

Each corner of Piedmont produces its own tomino; tomino Canavese and tomino Casalborgone, for instance, are designated PAT.
