Taleggio is an Italian, washed rind, soft, pasteurised cows cheese.

This washed rind cheese from the mountains of Northern Italy is much milder than its rather pungent aroma might suggest.

It is rich and creamy, savoury and fruity.  Taleggio is one of the world's earliest documented cheeses and has been around since Roman times.  It melts beautifully, lending itself to all sorts of recipes. This cheese was originally simply called Stracchino, meaning tired cheese. this relates to the condition of the herd upon finally reaching the plain after their long journey from their alpine pastures. Taleggio is formed in a square mould of 7-8 inches and 2-3 inches high.
