italian cheeseToronto Thursday, November 6, 2014 – 6:30 pm Istituto Italiano di Cultura – 496, Huron Street. With more than 500 surveyed cheese varieties, Italy presents one of the most diverse- and tasty- scenarios in the world. How cheese was initially made and how has it evolved in the centuries? What is the difference between artisanal and industrial cheese making? What is the best way to store, serve and pair cheese? We will talk of these and many other aspects of this key ingredient of Italian cuisine. At the end of the lecture we will taste 5 different cheeses, all imported directly from Italy.
