Who: Francesco Bagnoli
Where: Lamporecchio, Tuscany, Italy
A few months ago I found myself in Italy at the top of a hill at dusk, surrounded by olive trees and nibbling fresh cheese made by a blonde curly-haired man straight out of a Renaissance painting. "Is this heaven?" I pondered. There is something truly idyllic about I Due Falcetti, a small artisanal cheesemaking operation in Tuscany run by Francesco Bagnoli.
Here I give a peek into how Francesco makes his delicious cheese, a process full of passion and expertise which is characteristic of so many artisanal food products in Italy.
