Torregio holds crumbly lemony core – SFGate

Time for another Saturday cheese review from Janet Fletcher!

 

In the not-so-distant past, I winced when a good cheese cost more than $20 a pound. Now I marvel when it doesn’t.Heading my great-value list these days is Torregio, a cow’s milk cheese from the Northern Italian region of Lombardy. At $16.99 a pound, it compares favorably with many cheeses at twice that price.How does Arrigoni, the producer, do that – and with organic milk, no less?Perhaps the economics work for Arrigoni because the company, while a family enterprise, is not small. Known primarily for Gorgonzola and Taleggio, the creamery also makes other traditional cheeses of the region, such as Quartirolo, and the fabulous Salva Cremasco.

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
