DIVO Italiano range of five recipe cheeses developed with recipe-use and convenience when cooking in mind and encompasses soft, blue and hard Italian cheese under a single brand. The products in the range are:
DIVO Cubed Gorgonzola Piccante P.D.O. 100g
Gold award winner at the Nantwich International Cheese Awards 2013, a P.D.O. Italian blue cheese without any rind meaning nothing goes to waste. Packaged in a convenient pre-cubed format, it is the first to be marketed in this format for Gorgonzola cheese. It is matured for up to 90 days in Northern Italy to give it a sharp blue flavour and a creamy texture. It makes a delicious match with ripe pears and walnuts tossed into rocket leaves, melted on pizza, or used to make an indulgent cooking sauce.
DIVO Ricotta Twin-pots 2x100g
Highly commended at the Nantwich International Cheese Show 2013, this creamy, smooth but slightly grainy cheese is uniquely made using a blend of cows’ and sheep’s cream for a rich taste. Available in handy twin-pots for freshness and convenience, it is perfect for using in sweet and savoury dishes alike, such as the classic cheesecake or stuffed cannelloni.
DIVO Parmigiano Reggiano P.D.O. ‘Extra’ 160g
Gold and Bronze award winner at the South West Cheese Awards 2013, this Parmigiano Reggiano P.D.O. is graded for quality twice by the Parmigiano Reggiano Consortium, to give it the prestigious ‘Extra’ status. A crunchy and crumbly texture with fruity and nutty flavours, it is matured for at least 24 months from selected mountain dairies where the cattle graze on the lush high pastures and their milk gives this Parmigiano Reggiano outstanding flavour. This delicious cheese is ideal served grated or shaved on salads, soups, or simply broken off in chunks and eaten on its own with balsamic vinegar.
DIVO Coarsely Grated Heart of Parmigiano Reggiano P.D.O. 70g
The 'caviar' of Parmigiano Reggiano, this award-winning cheese (Bronze at the Royal Bath & West Show) is the premium core or heart (‘cuore’ in Italian) of the Parmigiano Reggiano cheese wheel. It is the softest and smoothest part, with fruity, nutty flavours and contains no hard rind unlike most grated Parmigiano Reggiano. It is freshly grated in a large coarse grain to add more texture to dishes. For best results, melt into risotto, pasta, meat balls or sprinkle over baked mediterranean vegetables.
DIVO Vegetarian Grated Italian Hard Cheese 80g
Made using 100% vegetarian rennet and Italian milk, this is a genuine alternative to Parmigiano Reggiano for vegetarians. This cheese is produced in an old monastery farm in the Lombardy region of Italy using time honoured hard pressed Italian cheese making techniques. This sweet and buttery cheese gives off a delicate but balanced flavour that makes it perfect for stirring into sauces and pasta, or use in recipes as a substitute for Parmigiano Reggiano or Grana Padano.
What is great about DIVO is that each cheese has a unique flavour and texture making the range incredibly versatile. With DIVO it’s all about bringing out the best in your recipes with great quality ingredients and the convenient formats make life easier when cooking.
