Try stracchino cheese

Stracchino (or crescenza) is a white cheese 30-day ageing, it has a slightly bitter flavor and oily texture. This cheese can be bought in the supermarket, or you can order a sandwich with stracchino in trattoria.

Most often in restaurants and trattorias stracchino cheese is served with toasted bread and it is called crostini, or with a thin pancake (piadina), and is also used as an ingredient for pizza.

If you decide to purchase a package of cheese in the supermarket, remember that the storage period should not exceed 14 days.

Prices: price per package of cheese (250 grams) in a supermarket is around €4.
