Bra cheese gets it's name from the city in Italy, Bra (near Alba). The two versions are Bra Tenero (soft) and Bra Duro. Bra Duro (hard) is made from raw cow's milk and is the firmer of the two, aged for at least 180 days. This Piemonte specialty cheese displays a pale-yellow pate with holes scattered throughout. The piquant flavor is nutty and aromatic.
You can serve this semi-sharp cow's milk cheese with a good Barolo wine, some crusty bread, and even some this slices of Prosciutto. You can also select a full-bodied red from California.
If you have a very good cheese shop close to you, check there first. Very little of this cheese is imported to the United States but there are a few sellers of the cheese online. Formaggio Kitchen sells it sometimes as do a couple sellers on Amazon.com: Italian Cheese. It is rare so if you see it, buy it!
