Sta'el cheese

Region: Lombardia

Milk: Goat

Definition: Semi-soft, medium mature cheese.

Raw material: Whole goats' milk, rennet, salt.

Characteristics: Cylindrical form, diameter 11-15 cm; sides 3-5 cm. Weight approximately 400-500 g, soft and elastic cheese. White colour.

Production area: Sta'el is produced in Valle Camonica, in the province of Brescia.

Production technique: Produced with whole milk from one yield, used immediately after milking, heated at a temperature of 36-38 °C. Liquid calf rennet is added and the milk is left to coagulate. Once the curds have formed they are broken into nut-sized pieces and reheated to 42°C. Once this temperature has been reached, the curds are left to stand in the whey and then extracted by hand and placed into moulds. The curds are turned after an hour and salted in brine (25%) for about 2 hours. Ripening takes about 30 days at 8-14°C.
