This cheese is from the Parmesan family and its nutty dense, firm and flaky texture is similar to its big brother.
It is from Veneto in northern Italy and is named after the river Piave. It boasts a sweet concentrated flavour with a slight bitterness and makes it brilliant served with Prosecco and olives when cut into bite sized chunks and served as a snack or aperitif.
Piave is wonderful shaved over a salad of green salad and great served with a flavoursome meat such as Finocchiona.
Like Parmigiano, Piave pairs with both red and white wine - or perhaps try with a beer that is full of flavour such as a craft lager or amber ale.

Who delivers the products?
For local customers we drop in person and further afield we use APC. We chose them to support our local hub in Frome and they give brilliant customer service and have a 98%+ delivery on time record.
Where do you deliver?
We deliver across the UK except Ireland and the Scottish Highlands.
What is the delivery charge?
We charge £6.99 for delivery which covers part of the cost of couriers. We cover the remaining charge and cost of the environmentally sustainable packaging.
Do I need to be in for delivery?
If you are not in when the delivery arrives the order can be left in a safe place if you leave a note for the driver on the door.
Is your packaging environmentally friendly?
We ship to you in boxes that are made from 95% recycled cardboard in a carbon neutral manufacturing process.
We use Wool liners to wrap the chilled components of your order. These liners contain one of nature’s best insulators - sheep’s wool! This can then be added to your compost and the outer liner put in with your plastic, or if you do not compost at home they quickly biodegrade in your waste.
Our chilled ice bricks are water which you can pour safely down the sink and recycle the plastic, however, why not reuse them yourself or give to friends to make use of?
You will notice our food containers are printed with a message informing you it is fully compostable, either at home or again if they head into general waste they will quickly biodegrade.
Our little sample pots are made from sugar pulp and our deli pots are also recyclable.
I live in Somerset surrounded by farm land, green space and wonderful woodland walks. However there is very limited access to speciality foods and nice delis.
Bristol is my original home town and during visits I shop at the lovely Italian deli's around the city. After serving a group of friends barbecued toasties containing the spicy Italian Nduja sausage, I started getting requests for me to pick up Nduja when I next went to Bristol!
Eventually I decided to make the business official and I live on a street called Little London, so Little London Deli was born in early 2021. My home is now full of freshly baked bread, chocolate Torta and a LOT of packing boxes!
With the support of a very small and lovely team the business has now expanded and we enjoy bringing Italian foods to those that love it much further afield than just my little Somerset village.
We look forward to 'meeting' you :)
Nicola and 'Team Deli'
