Re: taleggio cheese

i don't really like Taleggio so i'd use Fontina cheese...it has good melting qualities and is less pongy than Taleggio  mrgreen if it doesn't have to be an Italian cheese you could also use Gruyere, Gouda, Edam or Emmentaler  cheeses.

BLASPHEMER!!! lol  lol

jude if you aren't adverse to blue type cheeses try using a nice  soft Gorgonzola or even white stilton will give you a similar flavour profile ot the taleggio  although won't melt quite the same.

Re: taleggio cheese

Thank you for your suggestions, have never tried taleggio, I cant find it in my local stores, but I had some Swiss Raclette in the fridge which I used and was succesfull.
Much appreciated.

Allora!!!   shocked   They obviously don't stock the same type of taleggio there as here. I love Taleggio.

Re: taleggio cheese

Hi,

I'm from Australia and I've never seen taleggio cheese here either... I have a couple of places that I'm going to check but I'm probably going to need to substitute... Any suggestions on what to substitute in soup help (not blue/Stilton cheese though). puke

Thanks

Re: taleggio cheese

I love Edam as a melting cheese. More flavour than Emmenthal and less stringy than Mozzarella. Honestly, I love Mozzarella raw, but I have no clue how to eat it melted. I end up with one continuous string from my mouth to my stomach, like some kind of unpleasant medical procedure. puke

So I put Edam on pizza. I realise this is grounds for deportation if I ever go to Italy, but I'm willing to take the risk.

Re: taleggio cheese

hippytea , do you use the Mozzarella that is is a block when you make a pizza ?
I mostly use the block mozzerella, its not so wet as the balls of mozzerella and is easy to chop into little chunks and scatter as much or as little as you like where you want on a pizza.
When I did the pizza course with Gennaro , this is what he got us to use.

Re: taleggio cheese

I've only ever used the balls.

I reckon if I'm going to use the block stuff, I might as we use Edam. It's cheaper. Our local shop only sells block Mozzarella pre-grated, so it's expensive, and it doesn't really seem like the real thing anyway. The Edam is nice. They sell the balls, but I'll stick to eating them raw. Yum!

you could try  emmentaler, tilsiter, or esrom.   I think they would all give good flavour to a soup.
