A very popular semi-soft Italian cows'-milk cheese, fontina is deep golden-yellow in colour with a reddish-brown rind. It has a firm, slightly springy texture and melts easily, so is great to cook with. Its flavour is delicate which makes it a good dessert cheese. When fully matured, it can be grated and used like parmesan.
