Quattro Portoni Quadrello is an updated version of traditional Italian Taleggio that utilizes rich buffalo milk. This aromatic cheese is bold and creamy, with a distinctive sweetness from notes of fresh milk and savory undertones of cooked mushrooms. Try cutting through the cheese’s robust umami essence with bright, briny accompaniments like Castelvetrano Olives or Trois Petits Cochons Cornichons.
- Quattro Portoni, an Italian creamery run by the Gritti family, was originally a cattle company-turned water buffalo dairy and cheesemaking facility in the early 2000s.
- They bought a herd of 40 water buffalo and began to develop cheese recipes using the buffalo milk.
- Their Quadrello is a modern take on traditional Italian Taleggio.
- Italian cheese makers have been using buffalo milk in their recipes dating back to the 7th century.
