Day 596 : Cheese Spy Strikes Again

It's been quite a while since we've had a cheese spy dispatch so I thought why not change things up and bring you a cheese spy dispatch direct from Alba.

Need to brush up on your geography and not sure where Alba is?

It's in the Piedmont region in Italy and is known for their white truffle, peach, and wine production.

So what wines are they known for?

DOC: Barbera, Dolcetto, Nebbiolo.

DOCG: Barbaresco, Moscato.

Where does our cheese spy recommend?

Well folks it is the Trattoria del Peso. Only open for lunch. And only from Tuesday to Sunday. Located at Via Vezza 3, Castagnito.

What's great about it?

It's one of those locals only sorts of joints -- authentic and fresh homemade food in a casual setting. It is so popular tables turn over two or even three times during lunch.

Take a look at their cheese doesn't that make you want to hop on the next plane to Italy and get out of this miserable grey weather?
