Cheese Please! Italian Edition
Food & Drink
Cheese is produced in more than 40 countries around the world. From the simple ingredients of mil, rennin and salt, there are hundreds of regional varieties of cheese. Each country has its own history and style of production that gives its products their distinctive flavor, aroma and texture.
