What Is Semi-Hard Cheese?
Beautifully balanced semi-hard cheeses are moist enough to retain a springy pleasant texture while remaining firm enough to slice, meaning they are the ideal cheese for a wide range of uses. Made in a slightly different manner than fresh or semi-soft, these harder cheeses are compressed in molds, squeezing the curds into a firm sliceable solid while removing the whey. Since they are a slightly firmer cheese, they maintain their shape after being sliced, making them a great option for any kind of presentation, be it a cheese plate or wine pairing.
How to Cook with Semi-Hard Cheese?
Semi-hard cheeses hold up well against a shredder, so they are easily spread on anything from pizza to gratins and melt smoothly. Since semi-hard cheeses are usually only aged for less than six months they are characteristically mild with notes of hazelnut and browned butter. These slightly nutty warm flavors pair wonderfully with fruits and meats, making them the go-to when building a sandwich.
