Conrado Tomini in Oil (cow's milk)
Two in One!
Incredibly creamy and bordering on tangy, Conrado Tomini are both rich and refreshing. This eye-catching twin-pack contains two flavors: herbs and red peppers. The cheeses are packed in sunflower oil for an extra smooth texture.
Tomino is a traditional style of fresh, soft cheese from the Piedmont region of northwestern Italy, and is labeled “high quality milk.” According to an Italian law from the beginning of the 20th century, for the cheese to bear this distinction, the suppliers of the milk have to meet stringent parameters regarding purity and fat and protein content.
The tomino is so named for its small size. Conrado Tomini are completely rindless. Their young age and creamy milk, along with the oil treatment, make them ideal for spreading. They are excellent served alongside a salad, as a snack with crackers or bread, or as topping for bruschette or grilled meats. In a pizza bianca, they make an interesting substitute for ricotta. The package gives serving suggestions.
Since they are so delicate, it is best to pour them out carefully and drain them. The remaining sunflower oil makes a great dressing for the cheeses, especially when served alongside a filet mignon!
