Blue Marble Cow’s Milk Cheese

Product

Its origins lie on the borders with France in the high Val di Susa and there is another, alpine version produced in very limited amounts.  The influence of France can be identified in the name ‘blu’, recalling the French word ‘bleu’ used to describe the cheese.  Another rare blue, alpine pasture cheese – Murianengo – comes from the same area.
