Recipes with Cheese

Don’t let a piece of bread fall into the cheese! Why? Otherwise you have to buy a round of kirsch for everyone.  The cheese fondue– as sociable as it is nutritious -originated in Switzerland together with this custom. But let’s focus on other dishes, where cheese is very important as well. Hard cheeses such as Emmental are good for using as gratin-style toppings. Extra hard cheeses such as Parmigiano or Pecorino can be used as a fine flavoring,  grated over pasta and in the form of shavings on salads and meat, particularly served with carpaccio. Blue vein cheeses are an excellent addition to creamy sauces.

We have proposed cheese fondue in our other articles, try them in colder seasons, in the below recipes we are going to show you how summery, light, and varied cheese dishes can be.
