Taleggio is another cheese whose origins can be traced several centuries. References to the Lombardy-area cheese and its uses as currency can be found as far back as the 10th century AD, and it is also a cheese that came into being when cattle farmers stored their excess milk in the mountain caves of the region.
Rich and beefy with a slight saltiness, the full-flavored Taleggio has a sticky orange washed rind and a classically strong aroma and flavor. Its off-white paste verges on pale yellow and is soft, pliable, and velvety.
