Muffato meaning 'mouldy' in Italian, is made from pasteurized cow's milk, made by Moro Latteria di Moro Sergio, Veneto, Italy. The cheese is matured for a few weeks on wooden planks made up of fir trees. The rind is wrapped with mint, verbena and thyme plants and aged for 3 to 4 months that gives herbal taste to the cheese. The interior paste is sweet, grassy, herbaceous. It is best enjoyed with fruit jams.
