Italian Bigonda Cheese

We picked up and tried the Italian bigonda cheese with herbs for the first time last fall. It sounded like our type of cheese because of the herbs, and it was only supposed to be around for a limited time, so we were glad we got to try it. It seems to have reappeared on the shelves recently, so maybe it has made it into the permanent rotation?

We're not cheese experts, so when the package noted that it was a caciotta style cheese, we didn't really have any idea what that meant. According to Trader Joe's, the style is a semi-soft Italian farmstead cheese and theirs comes from the Dolomite mountain region. The cheese was a creamy white cheese, but the texture definitely seemed more semi-soft, and we liked that a lot. The flavor of the herbs, which included laurel, thyme, parsley, chives, fennel, and caraway seeds, was pretty prominent in the cheese, which we were happy about since that was everything we hoped it would be.

Buy again? Yes! This has been one of our more well-liked cheeses from Trader Joe's. The combination of flavors from the cheese and the herbs made this a delicious snack.
