Happened last August 27, Saturday, from 11AM to 6PM at Wine Story in Serendra, Bonifacio High Street, Taguig City, it was an escapade hopping from one station to another station to taste the best of the cheese.

Latteria d’lushia is using buffalo milk that infuses Italian flavor and style in their dairy products that ensures quality in their artisanal creations.

With a welcome “Thienot Champagne Brut NV” upon we enter, this bubbly drink gave the fruity and freshness of the grape varieties.

Four  Cheese Stations :

  • Fresh Cheese which I usually put in a salad like Ricotta, made me learned other cheese like Bufala and Burrata.  Best to partner for me with Thienot Champagne Brut NV as the taste made the cheese more flavorful since the cheese taste fresh.

  • Dips (Cheese and Yogurt)

Still my favorite is the Blue Cheese Flavor even there are dips in pesto and curry.  I go with the Red Wine, the “La Reverve De Malartic 2009” where the berry flavours made the dips quite spicy in taste.

  • Melted Cheese

I enjoyed doing melted cheese and bread as appetizer everytime we dine in a french restaurant.  It’s a smile when I saw Swiss Fondue where Provolone, Appia Vecchia were combined.  

With this one, “Carbonnieux Blanc 2010” white wine with a hinch of apricot and lemon flavor made the dips married the taste.

  • Aged Cheese

La Latteria d’luchia aged cheese are cured in their plant between 3 to 14 weeks letting them acquired distinct taste.

My favorite among the wine “Hugel Gewurztraminer Vendange Tardize 2006”,  the sweetness savor more the crisp taste of the processed cheese.

Primo Sale, Bufalino, Marronne di Venetto were some of the samplers of aged cheese.

Good also to be oriented with world-class, proudly Philippine-made cheese of La Latteria that I also tried at home doing simple dishes like my Baked Mussles which I put blue cheese with it.
