Bocconcino di Langa


Bocconcino di Langa one of the cutest litte cheeses I have ever seen. This petite creamy,tangy/sweet goat cheese is produced by Caseificio Dell'Alta Langa in italy. It's especially important to serve this cheese at room temperature to allow the creaminess of this cheese to come through.

I was in a very country mood this morning and decided I was going to whip myself up a farmer's omelet as I like to call them- organic free range eggs, fresh herb mix (chives, tarragon, parsley) and my star ingredient Bocconcino di Langa. Well let me tell you this recipe is one for the books! The creamy texture of the cheese whipped into the lights scrambled eggs and then perfumed with the fresh Heb's- it was like I was swept away to an Italian countryside without ever leaving Brooklyn!! What fabulous breakfast have you whipped yourself lately??
