“Il Maniaco” – The Maniac with Figs three-milks pyramid
Being different also means having the courage to make a line of perverse cheeses, or cheeses that have a perversion, that of concealing within them an ingredient that characterizes the taste and appearance. The perversion also lies in the fact that we are not in favour of combining our cheeses with honeys or mustards on top of cheese … in this case we have hidden them inside the dough.
A chisel work of dairy art, consists in unloading inside the truncated fuscelline of pyramid a first part of curd, then insert the added ingredient and then continue to fill the fuscella with the rest of the curd. you need patience and precision to get an excellent result.
In this case it is a three-milk cheese (cow, goat and sheep) where it is inserted into a fig senapato and in the crust we sprinkle it with spinach powder, so it becomes the MANIACO with figs.
The rind is obviously edible.
