After about 60 days of ripening, Mila Ortler Cheese forms an uneven brown rind. Its firm consistency, irregular eyes, distinctive milky flavour and mild aroma add up to a unique South Tyrol specialty cheese that is both satisfying and versatile.
A mild-spicy cheese which entices with its aromatic and mediterranean taste
One of the traditional South Tyrolean dishes are the bacon dumplings, hand made by the butcher's shop Villgrater in Sexten/Sesto.
Roasted it tastes especially good and is best served with sauerkraut or roast potatoes - suitably in addition a chill Bavarian beer.
