Product of the Month: Moliterno al Tartufo
What is it?
Moliterno al Tartufo is a Sardinian Ewe’s milk cheese laced with Truffle for an intense flavour. It’s a hard, unpasteurised cheese that is matured for around a year before the Italian summer truffles are mixed in to age for a few more months.
Where do I get it?
I bought this from Paxton and Whitfield but you can also find this online too.
How much is it?
£58 per kg – but you can get as much, or as little as you want on a weight basis in store
What’s so great about it?
Truffle and cheese work so well together and the flavour of this cheese is so intense, you can’t help but inhale that wonderful truffley smell as soon as you unwrap it!
It’s definitely for truffle lovers due to it’s strong flavour – but the beauty of this is that it lasts a long time! A little of this cheese goes a very long way…whether you are eating it on it’s own and savouring the truffle flavour or grating it onto a pasta dish for a wonderful earthy taste.
