Bel Paese (the words translate from Italian to English as "beautiful country") cheese is from the Lombardy region of Italy. It is a modern factory, semi soft cheese and has a light, milky aroma. The cheese was created in 1929 by the Galbani factory. This is an excellent melting cheese and makes a good substitute for mozzarella. Use Bel Paese as a snack or dessert cheese and pair with a fruity wine. The cheese does tend to be pretty bland.
This cheese became so popular that production was setup in the U.S. Neither the Italian or the U.S. version is a stand out among cheeses.
This cheese is pretty plentiful in cheese shops and even look for it at Whole Foods Market and Trader Joe's or even your well-stocked grocery store. Amazon has several suppliers of Bel Paese Cheese
