Asiago PDO is a type of cheese protected by the PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) status, which means that it can only be produced in certain regions of Italy and must adhere to strict production methods and standards. It is named after the Asiago plateau in the Veneto region of northeastern Italy where it originated.
- Asiago PDO cheese is made from cow's milk and comes in two varieties: fresh and aged. Fresh Asiago is a soft cheese similar to a mild provolone or mozzarella, while aged Asiago has a firmer texture and a sharper, nuttier flavour. The ageing process can range from a few months to several years, with the longer-aged varieties having a more intense flavour.
- The production process of this cheese involves heating the milk to a specific temperature, adding rennet to curdle the milk, and then pressing the curds into moulds to form the cheese. The fresh cheese is ready to eat right away, while the aged cheese is stored in a controlled environment for a period of time to allow it to mature and develop its characteristic flavour.
- Asiago PDO cheese is a versatile ingredient that can be used in various dishes, including salads, sandwiches, pasta dishes, and as a topping for pizza. It is also commonly enjoyed on its own, either as a snack or as part of a cheese board. Overall, Asiago PDO is a delicious and high-quality cheese that is highly regarded in Italian cuisine and around the world.
