Asiago…the town and the cheese

On Saturday we gathered our friends and made the trek up and over the mountain to go to Asiago (the town) for a cheese festival. The drive was gorgeous, and the area where is Asiago was beautiful as well. We enjoyed tasting different ages of Asiago cheese including a 4 month old cheese, a year old cheese and a two year old cheese. The younger one was softer and less strong, where as the older was harder and stronger. Then we tasted different honeys, it was interesting to taste the difference in what the bee eats, acacia honey vs. forest honey. (Asiago is not only famous for Asiago but for cheese and mushrooms as well.) Asiago is also home to a WWI monument where 30,000 Italian and Austrian troops are buried.
