Last year put all of us the test, and few industries were harder-hit than hospitality. At Cheese we present some of the members of the Slow Food Cooks’ Alliance, their stories and work. From Switzerland we welcome Giovanni Melis, originally from Sardinia, and member of the Slow Food Cooks’ Alliance.
The Swiss Alps are lived all year round, offering green pastures to cows and snowbanks to skiers. The Swiss highlands are particularly well-suited to the production of creamy, natural milk, whose flavor is enriched by the roughly 150 types of plants that the cows graze on.
At Cheese, Giovanni Melis presents dishes based on two of the most significant dairy products of the country:
- Pumpkin gnocchi with Mountain Pasture Sbrinz, steam cooked and presented with late-season tomatoes;
- A roll of Traditional Emmentaler with fig cream and raw ham.
