Basil Torte Cheese in Orange County?
- torta basilica
As you can tell by my pseudonym, my favorite food is 'torta basilica' or 'basil torte' cheese. Found it first in the Viktualienmarkt in Munich (it's originally made in Milan) & have been addicted ever since. It is a mild semi-hard white cheese slices layered with mascarpone, pesto & whole pines nuts & oh so delicious. You used to be able to find it at the Atrium Court in Fashion Island and then Gelson's started carrying it, but I recently have not found it there & the cheese manager says they probably won't get anymore in. Sob sob - it just wasn't Christmas without Torta Basilica - does anyone have any suggestions?
