Grey pearl


In the Veneto’s traditions for preserving cheeses, ingenious methods were used which also turned out to have an excellent effect on their flavour.  In this instance, the still fresh cheese is put to dry in wood ash mixed with spices. In the truffle version, small pieces of the black tuber are added directly to the curd.
