Tallegio-Cheese Shots
« on: June 02, 2013, 02:19:49 PM »
Been meaning to post this--here's my Tallegio at about 7 weeks. Jim Wallace has a great article and recipe on cheesemaking.com. One of my favorite cheeses.
Darn, another cheese meltdown--ahh, perfect fondue.

That looks interesting.  The Tallegio I've seen is about 1 1/2" thick but yours looks much thinner.  Is this a photo illusion?

A cheese for that great texture on the rind.  Looks very nice.  Any shots of the interior?

No illusion, this Tallegio was 1" thick. I used the Tallegio mold I bought on cheesemaking.com, which is for at least a 3 pound make, and mine was 2 pounds.
