A mountain cheese that will warm you up a cold winter night. Melt this rich and delicious Montasio into polenta or risotto, make it the star of your next grilled cheese, use in stuffed pastas, melt on top of pizza, the possibilities are endless. It's semi-firm texture makes it perfect for shredding, and flavors of meat stock and sauteed mushrooms are comfort incarnate.
