Fresh cheeses are the first of all cheeses, because they correspond to the least elaborate stage of manufacture. Fresh cheeses are characterized by their high moisture content. There is a wide variety of this production which can be classified into 5 categories: white cheeses, Petit-suisse, flavored cheeses (garlic, fine herbs, etc.), regional specialties (brousse, Brocciu Corsica, cremets d'Anjou…) and so-called soft cheeses but sold before maturing. Characterized by its whiteness, its sweet and slightly tart flavor, the fromage frais is eaten plain, salty or sweet, but also in many dishes.
Dried tomatoes are a specialty of southern Italy. It is invaluable for spicing up tomato sauces as it makes both sweeter and creamier. Slip a good handful, finely sliced, into a Basque chicken, a bolognese sauce ... Mix it with a little of its oil into a fluid paste to spice up with garlic and Parmesan, to season a pasta dish or, more simply, to spread generously on toast of toasted bread.
