Fresco

Fresco

In the Italian tradition, it is not uncommon for a single cheese to have two different expressions: one fresh and one aged. This practice most likely arose from necessity. If milk was in abundance, it could be turned into a fresco (Italian for “fresh”) cheese, consumed right away and without worry of making it last. Frescos are typically softer and milder than their aged counterparts, typically eaten at breakfast.
