What is Fontina cheese?
Depending on where and how it is made, Fontina can vary widely. The original Italian-style cheese is more intense in flavor and aroma. Offering a milky color and mushroomy taste: it is more robust in flavor than the Danish or American varieties. Italian Fontina has a firmer texture filled with small holes.
Milder Belgian and American varieties are more delicate and offer a sweet finish. A great melter, no matter the variety; use this cheese for pizzas, sauces, burgers, and soups.
