Bebé di Sorrento cheese
Bebè di Sorrento
Bebè di Sorrento is a cows’ milk cheese produced in Peninsula Sorrentina (Napoli)). It takes its name from its shape, which is reminiscent of that of infants in swaddling clothes. It is a comparatively new cheese, probably invented for tourists who prefer a milder flavour than the traditional cheeses of the area. It only matures for a few days.
The light coloured cheese has a delicate taste and texture. Usually the diameter is about 5-6cm with a height of 10-12 cm and a weight of around 500 g. It is immersed twice in brine, the first time for 5-6 hours and then for a further 2-3 hours.
