Stagionato

Stagionato

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 resources were limited and needed to be stretched, the cheese would become stagionato (“seasoned”) via the process of affinage. Stagionatos are typically stronger and more assertive cheeses, eaten at dinnertime.
