This is a Smokey take on the Stella Alpina and conjures up the images and perfumes of a Smokey log cabin in the alpine mountain pastures. Inspired by my last trip to Italy walking through the summer pastures high in the alps of northern Italy.
Like the Stella Alpina it is a semi soft alpine cheese, ripened with white mould, the rind is smokey dappled with white.CHARACTERISTICS
