Piemonte is home to some of Italy's finest foods - truffles, wine, and of course cheese. In the southwest corner is the small commune of Morozzo, the home of Caseificio La Bottera, a family-run operation that includes a farm, a dairy, and a stunning restaurant serving gorgeous traditional Piemontese fare. This small, visually striking Piemontese cheeses are made from 100% pasteurized cows’ milk. The outer wrapping of chestnut leaves not only provides a dramatic presentation but also helps to protect the cheese. During the short aging period of approximately 15 days, the leaves impart a subtle earthy, woodsy flavor to the milk, creamy cheese.
