Lagom is practiced throughout Sweden, in every facet of Swedish culture. Although there is no exact English translation, the term embodies the Swedish principals of being gentle, having just the right amount, and blending in without being extreme.
It’s no surprise then that Swedish Fontina is a go-to cheese for cooking due to its wonderful blending and melting qualities, and dutifully mild flavor that adds depth to recipes, without overpowering them. Based on Italian Fontina, Swedish Fontina is the more youthful, softer, slightly tart and sweetly creamier presentation.
Under its red wax casing, Swedish Fontina’s pale yellow, smooth textured interior exudes the modest, casual nature for which Sweden is known. It is a cheese that gets along well with just about anyone or any other edible thing.
Application: Perfect for fondue, cream sauces, egg dishes, baked into bread, veal dishes or melted over vegetables, Swedish Fontina is also a very popular sandwich cheese and goes well with peppered salami, roasted red peppers, fresh fruit and crusty bread.
Pairing: An excellent choice contrast would be a crisp white wine like a Chardonnay or a Riesling. A refreshing lager beer makes another fine choice.
