The Gustiamo Cheese Board

Presenting the Gusti Cheese Board! This cheese board offers Italian vibes from south to north: featuring the Sicilian sun of Pantelleria, the pastures and vineyards of the Emilia Romagna food valley, and the breezy hills of Alta Langa.

The star of the spread is a glorious yellow-tinged wedge of Vacche Rosse Cheese. With this Red Cow Cheese, we’ve paired 3 flavors meant to complement its deep, complex flavor profile.

UMAMI. Add a few drops of this tart and viscous Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena directly on top of the cheese, your umami brain will thank us for this (traditionally Modenese) suggestion.
NUTTY + CRUNCHY. After 24 months of aging, this Vacche Rosse Cheese is delightfully crumbly and boasts complex nutty notes that are amplified by the richness of toasted Alta Langa Hazelnuts from Piemonte.
SWEET + FLOWERY. Vacche Rosse Cheese is made with superb milk that is naturally sweet with hints of wildflowers. That’s thanks to the meticulous diet of the red cows, a unique heritage breed. Vacche Rosse Cheese has a persistent finish with notes of creamy caramel that pair astonishingly well with the tangy Zibibbo Raisins, sun dried on Sicily’s Pantelleria island.

🧀 HOW TO SERVE 🧀
