A nice cheese, from Northern Italy. (from Whole Foods)

I hope this isn't a travesty, but I ate some with a Montebuena Rioja, 2004.

Cheese was slightly smelly, pretty creamy. Sort of like a cross between Camembert and Doux de Montagne.

Speaking of Seinfeld, does anybody remember the episode when George talks about eating a big hunk of cheese?

"George: I wanna bite into a big hunk of cheese, just bite into it like it's an apple."

I feel the same way about Taleggio. The stuff is so delicious i could probably just eat a big hunk of it.
Taleggio is great, the smell can be a little off-puttig to those who don't like stinky cheeses, but inside the texture is just right - not hard, creamy but not too soft, and the taste is delicious.

Tesco sells it in my area, one of the few reasons I still keep coming back to the Corporate monster.

Instead of a topping, try it stirred INTO the polenta for a soft preparation. Great as a base for braised short ribs or lamb shank, etc.

When I head-up to your fair city, please make sure you introduce me to this style. Smile
