Cusie In Foglie Di Castagno


Cusie Cheese wrapped in Chestnut Leaves is one of Beppino Occelli’s masterpiece. The word “cusie” is the local expression for ‘œthat which there is’, in the Piemontese dialect. It means that, in order to produce this Italian hard cheese, Occelli uses whatever type of milk is available at the moment of production. Always starting with a base of high-quality alpine cow’s milk, the cheese can be combined with either goat milk or sheep milk making each batch of cheese unique. The Cusie is one of the best cheeses produced in Occelli’s dairy, truly a nutty and piquant wheel. Once the artisan cheese making process is completed, the wheels of Cusie are wrapped into chestnut leaves and the cheese is aged in humid cellars situated in the Valcasotto for a period of over 2 years. This process lends the Cusie a distinctive woodsy flavor and makes it a perfect cheese to be tasted together with a good dark beer.
