Italian Farmhouse Cheeses On The Menu At AcquaFarmhouse cheeses are on the menu throughout November at Acqua, the cosy Italian restaurant at Centara Grand Mirage Beach Resort Pattaya, artisan-made with some using milk from a single herd of animals on the cheese-maker’s own farm.
A splendid introduction is the farmhouse cheese platter, priced at THB 890++ and presenting a varied selection along with aged balsamic vinegar.
Taleggio cheese, a soft, mild crusted cheese that originates from the valleys and steep gorges of Lombardy, is served melted along with a soft polenta, boiled cornmeal that also comes from northern Italy, together with crispy Italian dry-cured pork, for THB 790++.
Fontina cheese comes from the Alpine valleys at Aosta, where the cows are moved to a high altitude for part of the year to feed on rich grasslands that help give their milk a distinctive flavour. This cheese is served with chicken breast and cooked ham, and is priced at only THB 490++.
Acqua, which features views over the resort’s water park, is suitable both for convivial evenings and for romantic dinners. The restaurant is open every day from 18.00 to 23.00 hrs.
