Bra Duro

Taking its name from the tiny city in northern Italy (where Slow Food was born), Bra Duro is a firm--or duro--cow's milk cheese made by combining two milkings from the same day. A dry salt rub is applied each day for six days before it's left to mature into a golden round, packed with sharp, nutty and buttery flavor. This D.O.P. is a nationally protected cheese and it's at the Goose but only for the lucky few who get here quick.
