Bel Paese


Please select an option

Here by popular demand, we bring you Bel Paese. Invented in Lombardy in 1929 by the Galbani Cheese Company, Bel Paese (Italian for "beautiful country") is now made in Wisconsin. Dante used the phrase "Bel Paese" to describe Italy, which inspired Galbani's name for this Italian-style cheese. It is a semi-soft, uncooked, pressed pasteurized cow's milk cheese with a wax rind. Made in small discs, it is a pale, creamy yellow, and has small holes within its texture. Bel Paese has a mild, buttery flavor, similar to mozzarella but with more body and tang. A versatile cheese, Bel Paese is suitable for cracker-snacks or as a dessert cheese. It also melts well, making it perfect for casseroles or pizza. Savor Bel Paese paired with a light Chardonnay.
