Castelrosso cheese is a semi-hard cow's milk cheese that comes from the Piedmonte region in northeastern Italy. It is similar in appearance to Castelmagno. It has a natural thick, gray rind with a smattering of yellow mold, and a dry, crumbly, snowy white paste. The flavor is mild: lactic, buttery, and clean with a gentle, residual tang similar to Lancashire and other English cheddar-styles. It complements Italian condiments such as grape mostarda and chestnut honey.
Serve with crusty bread, thin sliced salami and a nice mostarda. Pour a glass of Chianti to serve alongside. Righteouscheese.com suggests using Castelrosso in place of Queso fresco on pulled pork tacos or on black beans.
Look for this cheese in well-stocked cheese shops or find it online at Murray's Cheese. Purchase mostarda at Amazon.com: Mostarda
