Description

What should you know before buying Fontina cheese?

Prepare yourself, because the Fontina cheese is the discovery of a lifetime. Meet a buttery Italian cheese made from cow’s milk. The mild nutty taste of the Fontina cheese is characteristic of this cheese fondue master.

Because the cheese is so soft and buttery in texture, the cheese is extremely suitable for a tasty cheese fondue. The cheese you order at Hollands Kaashuis is a real Fontina cheese with a DOP quality mark.

The Fontina cheese from the Fontin family has been a protected cheese since 1977 and is also traditionally made by hand.

The Fontina DOP that you buy from us really comes from the northwest of Italy

On the one hand logical, because the Fontina cheese is a recognized quality mark cheese, but unfortunately there are many counterfeit cheeses in circulation with a misleading name. You have Fontinelle, Fontin Val, Fontenella and Fantal, for example. These cheeses are not made by the legendary Fontin family and are also produced by machine rather than by hand.

The Aosta Mountains are the origin of the characteristic Italian Fontina cheese. This mountain range is located on the edge of the Alps, where mountain cheese has been made with pasteurized cow’s milk since the 12th century. The softness of the cheese is due to the roaming cows that graze in the untouched nature. The softness of the cheese is an age-old secret of the Fontin family that you can taste when the cheese melts on your tongue.
