The Best of Autumn Round Up

    When it comes to Fall there few cheeses nearer and dearer to my heart than the following offerings.  Their origins rambling from Italy to Belgium to the U.S.A., you can't take a wrong turn with any of them. Even a meaty, porky Creminelli salami makes it into the mix.  Enjoy Autumn while it lasts.  Soon our golden days of falling leaves and hot apple cider will be replaced with wintry blasts of sleet.  
Creamy, sticky cow's milk Lou Bergier from northern Italy.
Fruity, punchy-piquant Valdeon blue from Spain. 
(A personal favorite)
Porky and silky this basic Casalingo Salami from Creminelli shines on every antipasti board.
Cow's milk Taleggio is pudgy and meaty and all good.  (Also, a close cousin of Lou Bergier.)
The lone American on this list.  Pleasant Ridge Reserve takes inspiration from the high alpine cheeses of Switzerland.
