“ISOTTA” – Cow’s milk cheese De’Magi
Isotta the shit, perfect if you get it cooked… is that funny? A little, yes, but it’s all true.
This cow’s cheese with a clean rind is a simple cheese if eaten raw, but finds a second life if you taste it warm, given its structure can melt and spin almost like a pasta filata, but with a totally different flavor. It is sweeter, tastier and more aromatic than mozzarella but above all the melting of the cheese has a greater consistency than mozzarella because it does not release water.
If the rind is clean, it is edible, but since it is a cheese that after a while is removed from the vacuum and is subject to mould, if it is very moulded, it is better not to eat it, not because it is dangerous for the health, but because it alters the organoleptic characteristics of this cheese.
