Danish Fontina Cheese



Danish Fontina Cheese is a knock-off of the Italian fontina, and is often therefore slagged by Champagne Foodies, but it is more popular in North America than the Italian version owing to the Danes' ability to price cheeses at a level that ordinary people can afford.

It is a little sweeter than the Italian fontina. In fact, it tastes a bit like Gouda.

Danish Fontina is made from cow's milk. The taste is milder than its smell. The cheese is creamy yet semi-firm and pliable.

The rind is coated in red wax, which is not edible.
