BellaVitano is our versatile, foolproof friend in the kitchen. We like to slice it for sandwiches, melt it in panini and grate it into salads. We also think it goes particularly well with all sorts of lightly smoked meats.
All things alcohol get along famously with BellaVitano. Beers and ciders that pair well include fruit beers, stout, weiss beer and brown ale. Wines that we recommend: cabernet sauvignon, chianti, pinot noir, merlot, red zinfandel, pinot gris, syrah/shiraz, sake (preferably medium dry), rioja and malbec. Plenty of spirits sip well with BellaVitano, as well, including port, madeira, scotch, brandy, light rum, tequila reposado, tequila añejo, rye whiskey and cognac. This cheese is definitely a chameleon when it comes to pairing.
Family favorites like macaroni and cheese, tuna melts with capers and onion, French onion soup and Cobb salad all up their already tasty game with creamy, melty, mature BellaVitano.
