I was actually pretty surprised to find an intriguingly diverse display of European cheeses in the “Taste the Difference” range. Readers of this blog will know that I have previously advised against buying cheese from supermarkets but something about the Taleggio called to me. It was a cheese that I enjoyed selling in the shop in France and often would bring a hunk home with me. I think as well, that this was the first time that I had seen the cheese on sale in the UK.
|Soft centred and pale - clearly more liquid just under the rind|
|Rind was quite pale, showing relatively little development|
|The Taleggio performed respectably under the grill|
