Meet Puzzone di Moena — a much-loved Trentino mountain cheese whose identify actually interprets to ‘large stink’.
As most cheese-lovers will perceive, there is a type of proportional relationship between pungency and deliciousness — in case you get previous these reeking notes of sweaty socks and funky fermented mushrooms, you might be rewarded with a mind-blowingly tasty cheese. Puzzone is not any exception and its advanced flavour has highlights of hazelnuts, inexperienced herbs, melted butter, a delicate spice and cured meats — all of which intensify because the cheese matures.
Puzzone is barely produced at one dairy situated within the impossibly picturesque Fiemme valley and it is a must-do cease alongside the Dolomites Cheese Route.
An enormous tacky due to Davide from the Caseificio Sociale Predazzo e Moena for sharing this cheese’s story, and to Agritur Maso Lena for offering a tasting location and superb farmhouse lunch.
