BellaVitano Gold: Wisconsin sweetie – SFGate

Janet Fletcher’s latest review… and I concur: I find the cheese too sweet and a little odd.

“On the tongue, it is waxy yet creamy, with some of the crunchy protein crystals that can develop in long-aged cheese. The flavor is gentle and frankly sweet, with a fruity tartness in the finish.

Sartori uses starter cultures developed in house – it doesn’t buy cultures, as most creameries do – and I have to believe that explains some of those unusual aromatic attributes.

BellaVitano Gold lacks the layered, multidimensional character that I hope for in cheeses of such long maturation. I tire of its sweet, uncomplicated taste pretty quickly…”

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.
