A gorgeous find from Caseficio Alta Langha in northwestern Italy, the same co-operative that produces the ever-popular La Tur and some of our favorite robiolas.
Brunet comes in small, attractive rounds with a delicate, straw-colored, natural rind. Pillowy soft and creamy, the flavors hit a balance between earthy mushrooms and light, sweet acidity with a long, clean finish. This versatile treat goes from day to night with little fuss. Try it as a breakfast cheese on crusty French bread with a sweet strawberry spread; as a lunch course paired with prosciutto and cracked green olives; or as a dessert served with dense panforte and a Muscato Spumante.
