First Asiago
« on: March 14, 2014, 06:09:30 AM »
Just opened my first Asiago, made fron the New England recipe. This is a new cheese to me, so I don't really know what it should be like.
The verdict: nice cheese, good texture but rather bland.

How long did you age it?  If it's Pressato (30 days or so) it will be "mild".

I did mine for about 30 days and it was really good.  You can age them out further and change it into a grating cheese.  I loved the one I made from the same recipe you used.
