Asiago cheese

Cutting Terms

Definition: - Hard Italian Cheese with a rich nutty flavor. It is made from whole or part-Skim cow's milk, and comes in small wheels. It is among the best substitutes for Parmigiano-Reggiano. This Italian Cheese originally came from the Province of Vicenza. Asiago is served in two different forms. The aged cheese (more than one year) is hard and is considered a grating cheese, like Parmesan or Romano. The younger variety, when still soft, is used on Cheese trays and Antipasto presentations. The hard, aged asiago has a full, rich, almost nutty, flavor. The softer, younger Cheese is milder in flavor. In the past asiago was made with ewe's milk. Today, most types are produced using cow's milk. For a refreshing change, substitute grated asiago for Parmesan in your favorite recipe. It enhances salads, pastas, and pizzas.
