I love Taleggio for its smell and tangy fruity taste. This cheese has a real presence and it is one of the most pungent cheeses I have tried. I actually like the smell and encourage you to try this cheese and if you don’t like the smell be assured it doesn’t taste like it smells.

Very discernible but I wouldn’t say off the nose. Grassy.
Luxuriously smooth, tangy and fruity with a buttery finish. Rind is thin and edible.
Semi-soft and creamy. Melts and grills very well.
Pale yellow and smooth. The thin edible rind is the colour of straw.
I have recently made both the most amazing bruschetta and the creamiest grilled cheese on toast you can imagine with it. I love it smeared on water crackers or rye biscuits/bread just as much though.
If you aren’t cooking with it, don’t forget to bring it to room temperature b
