Buying Fontina

For many recipes I recommend using genuine Fontina from Valle d'Aosta because of its superb flavor, texture, and melting ability. Fortunately, imported authentic Fontina is widely available in markets with good cheese departments or from gourmet vendors on the internet. Be sure that you are buying DOP (name protected) Fontina. It's slightly more expensive than other semi-soft cheeses, but it is well worth the cost.
