Seafood recipes for the Christmas

Christmas parties are only spent once a year, a very exceptional time when beloved ones gather and observe and partake in the mood of the season.  As such, your Yuletide dinner (or lunch) spread should be more than the usual.

Asiago Cheese

Asiago Cheese

Asiago cheese is a nutty flavored cheese that hails from Europe. It is named for a region in Italy where it was first produced. This region is known as the Asiago High Plateau, which lies within the Italian Alps. As far back as the year 1000 AD, Asiago cheese was produced by farmers in this region for use locally. Now, it is manufactured commercially in northeast Italy, specifically in the provinces of Vincenza e Trento, Padua, and in Treviso.

Asiago cheese is produced in two forms as follows: fresh Asiago, also known as Pressato, and mature Asiago, which is called Asiago d´Allevo. Fresh Asiago has an off-white color and is milder in flavor than Asiago d´Allevo. Asiago d´Allevo also has a more yellowish color and is somewhat grainy in texture.
