Fontina is a delicious Italian cow's milk cheese. It can be semi-soft to firm in texture with a range of flavors from mild and creamy to more intense - depending on the region in where it came from.
It's delicious in sandwiches, lasagna, and even fondue because it melts beautifully.
Grating Fontina can be challenging because it's soft texture. Next time, freeze your wedge of cheese! This makes it much easier for grating and doesn't change the texture of flavor when cooked.
