Robiola di Capra Incavolata - each - 12oz
SKU : 20163800000
A pure goat's milk robiola from Piedmont wrapped and aged in cabbage leaves. When young, the cheese has a thick cakey texture and a beautifully complex flavor. As it ages, the cheese starts to mellow and through contact with the leaves, it develops an vegetal strength in its aroma and flavor. At its ripest, it oozes out through the leaves. If you're lucky enough to get one at this stage, serve it up on a sloped plate to catch all the gooey goodness.

We were one of the lucky ones. Stays molten in the fridge, and only a few minutes on the table it is nearly as soft as a hot fondue. We served this with lightly toasted whole wheat bread from the FK bakery, a fine match for texture and weight, and some fresh grapes for a sweet counterpoint. A breakfast not forgotten soon.
