Gratin Bleu, bronze medal at Nantwich Food Awards

Gratin Bleu cheese, made by Caseificio Pier Luigi Rosso from Biella, has been awarded a bronze medal in its league at “118th Nantwich Food Awards”, in England.

This historical and prestigious competition, located inside the Nantwich agricultural show in Cheshire, has gathered this year more than 4000 cheeses, from 24 nations.

It is the most important cheese-related event in England, and one of the biggest in the world.

Gratin Bleu is a semi – hard, very ripe cheese obtained from whole pasteurized cow’s milk and left to acidify, with the addition of selected moulds. The flavour is delicate and buttery and becomes more complex when contrasted with the sharpness of the marbling.
