Stracchino

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know about the Italian cheese called "stracchino" or sometimes Certosino or Certosa (after the cistercian monks that must have made it - though it might be a brand name).
It's a very mild but tasty soft shiny cheese (same thickness, maybe, as cream cheese, but cream cheese is not shiny) - related to gorgonzola but without the mold, and slightly softer. I wondered if it's available in the States or in England. I know two people, one in each place, who would die to be able to find it but they never can. One is in Boston, the other in London. Anybody from either place who knows where to find it? and anyone know how to make it? (I imagine it might be very hard to make at home, but just on the far chance...)
Thanks

further question

Ishbel,
I was wondering yesterday why i didn;t just google stracchino and I realized that the reason is that you can find lots of sources for things but not all are good ones. Have you ever used this cheese site and are they reliable and good, etc?
thanks
also - does anyone outside of italy actually KNOW stracchino? My kids both are abroad and they can find mozzarella di bufala, which is now widely known, but not stracchino.

I haven't used that site, Siduri - Edinburgh has such a famous Italian deli that all our needs are catered for by them! They don't just have Italian foods, by the way!

Valvona & Crolla - Welcome

Check and see if V&C sell it - if so, your offspring are in luck because they do mail order! It's not a cheese that I've looked for, though.
