ADVICES AND CURIOSITY
Strakì Sterilgarda is a cheese similar to the typical soft cheese Italian Lombard. A soft cheese and short seasoning made from whole cow’s milk. It looks like a fatty and creamy cheese with a white color. Originally produced in Lombardy, the etymology of the name is related to the use of milk from “tired” cows (from Lombard stracch) for the transhumance to the valley floor after the summer pasture.
