(Someone had to take the bull by the antlers)
My first experience with taleggio was cheese nirvana; stinky, delicious, smooth, and under $20/lb. I thought I was in cheese heaven.
Subsequent purchases have been disappointing, too mild and presumably under-ripe. Aside from smell, are there other indicators for when it's ready, and what is the best way to mature it once I own it?
Thanks, fellow cheese mice.
