Blu Del Moncenisio

Blu-del-Moncenisio

Blu del Moncenisio is a blue cheese hailing from high in the Val di Susa, a valley in the Italian Alps bordering France. This cheese takes its name from the mountain pass leading through the municipality of Moncenisio. While this cheese is certainly Italian, it is a wonderful illustration that food, culture, and tradition transcend international borders. The tall cylindrical form of Blu del Moncenisio is reminiscent of the Fourme d’™Ambert. This is no coincidence as the French cheese is made not far across the border in Grenoble. The alternative French spelling ‘œBleu de Moncenis’ also links this cheese to its counterpart. Yet, while the two cheeses share many similarities, in flavor and texture they show marked distinction. Where Fourme d’™Ambert tends to be more mild with the flavor of fresh cream, Blu del Moncenisio cheese is dense and rich. In flavor Moncenisio is an assertive, yet balanced cheese with notes of chocolate, cream, and earth with a wonderful salty, savory edge.
