Robiola Cheese originates from the small town of Arona, in the province of Novara, in the Piedmont area of Northern Italy.
The term 3 Latti is Italian for three milks. This cheese is made from an equal mixture of cow’s milk, sheep’s milk and goat’s milk.
Robiola is a mild cheese perfect blended into polenta or rice for a creamy flavorful side dish. Try it with some apple or pear for a simple, appetizer.
Pecorino Romano is one of most widely used, sharper alternatives to Parmesan cheeses. Because of the hard texture and sharp & salty flavor, Pecorino Romano is an excellent grating cheese over pasta dishes, breads and baking casseroles. Although, the use of the cheese is limited because of its extreme saltiness. Pair it with a glass of big, bold Italian red wine or a light beer.
