Lidia's Italy

Fontina Hot & Cold (Valle D'Aosta)

Season 3, Episode 12 of 26

This episode features a true comfort food, Veal Chops with Fontina, along with a delicoius Fondue Valle d'Aosta-Style, and a great Roasted Pepper and Olive Salad with Fontina and Creamy Mustard Dressing. The protagonist of this episode is the creamy, pungent fontina cheese from the mountains of Valle d'Aosta. Lidia will take you to the real source of this powerful regional product - the cows - who head up and down the rich and fertile mountains where they eat particular grasses that ultimately affect the taste of the milk and the cheese that comes from it. Leave it to Lidia to meet the characters behind the product, and even milk one of the cows that produce the cheese!
