Fontina is considered to be one of the most versatile cheeses in the world. While it originated in Italy, Fontina is produced in different variations throughout the world. In Wisconsin, cheesemakers produce Italian, Swedish, and Danish styles of this cheese. Fontina is commonly melted into food, but also deserves a place on either your dessert or dinner tray.
Danish and Swedish styles are slightly tart and nutty, with light, earthy flavors. Italian styles taste mild, earthy, and buttery.
