What are Some Ways to Use Boschetto Cheese?
With its delicate, yet distinct flavor, aroma, and soft texture, boschetto is a perfect cheese for many occasions.
Whether your next cheese board is for a wine night with your friends or the dessert of a 12-course meal, boschetto is a perfect addition. We recommend pairing it with a glass of dry white wine and a bit of fig jam.
With such a lovely and rare flavor, boschetto it is best eaten on its own or with something simple that allows the flavors of the cheese to shine through. A pillowy heap of scrambled eggs with boschetto shaved over the top is the perfect pairing for this gourmet Italian import; it will knock the socks off your next brunch guests.

If you’re making a side dish of roasted root vegetables, adding some fresh shavings of boschetto cheese, a sprinkling of herbs, and a squeeze of lemon will elevate it to the next level. This can be served and enjoyed however you’d like: hot, cold, or at room temperature.
