My Favorite Cheese

For the past couple of years, I have been captivated by a special cheese from Tuscany. I had the rare opportunity to try it when I met Dr. Luigi Bolli in 2014, and since have never felt so connected with another handmade cheese in my life.  I have referred to it as the greatest cheese in the world, and according to my list for the qualities of excellent cheese, it leaves very few, if any boxes unchecked.  To highlight just a few: It’s sustainable, farmstead, made from raw milk, it is unique in appearance and flavor, it is an original recipe that cannot be duplicated in any other place, and it has been that way for over 800 years. But, the list goes on. I love the family that makes it, I love their home and I truly appreciate the flavor of the special land where they live. It is called Gran Mugello Ubaldino, and I produced this video to tell some of its story during the Fancy Food Show a couple weeks ago.  When I first tasted it, I knew I would buy and sell a lot of it in my life.  It was not until I learned the story, when I began to feel the honor that would come along with doing so…
