Fontal Cheese is a whole milk cheese that is mainly produced in northern Italy. Soft, mild & creamy, Fontal belongs to the Fontina-style family but is set apart by its versatility making it a great cheese to keep stocked in your fridge. Fontal is suitable as a table cheese and can also be melted into sauces, thickly shredded over pasta or pizza, or pressed into a gooey grilled sandwich. It tastes slightly milky with fine spice and is not very salty. The rind of Fontal is thin, smooth, and elastic with an orange-red color and the paste is compact, white in color, with sparse eyes. The careful processing and traditional ripening give it a harmonious buttery milk aroma with a delicate spicy fragrance. Excellent eaten with warm bread and jams!
