Cheese as Art , Art of Cheese by Naturalmente Lunigiana, Tuscany

Browsing the photo album from Terre di Vite food and wine festival, I was stopped in my tracks by the wonderful cheese display pictured below.


Where do they come from I wondered?

The answer is Naturalmente Lunigia in Tuscany.

When I visited their site I was awed by their 'proditti'. The formaggi slide show made me wonder, Cheese as Art, Art of Cheese?

Pieces like the 'ricotta stagionata aromatizzata' (below) feel so perfect one could be afraid of putting a dent in them.

Ricotte stag aromi2

How else could I decide if the taste matches or surpasses the look?

Naturalmente Lunigiana also has a Salumi line with Coppa, Guanciale, Mortadella della Lunigiana and other delicacies.
