Asiago Fresco Mitica
January 28, 2010
The third cheese on the Whole Foods cheese plate The lady prepared for The Man and me was Asiago Fresco Mitica.
Quite frankly, I expected more from this cheese. It is a DOP protected cheese from Italy, made in the traditions of the Italian cheesemakers.
It is a young Asiago and semi-firm; unlike the Asiago d’Allevo which is aged, aromatic and quite wonderful. The Lady sells the aged version and offers it grated as well as wedged.
Perhaps it was just this cut of cheese but it was bland, rubbery and had no aroma and almost no taste.
It was just a piece of nothing cheese.
I give this particular Whole Foods wedge of Asiago Fresco no Paws as it deserves none.
Serving Suggestions: I’ll reserve suggestions until The Lady finds another outlet so I can compare wedges and then make my pronouncements…
