Besides the aesthetic appeal, wrapping cheese in leaves serves the purpose of a natural packaging, preserving the moisture of the cheese, but also infusing it with the distinct aroma and flavor of the leaf used. You can find the tradition of leaf-wrapped cheeses in Italy, Spain, France, and many other countries, from chevres like Banon wrapped in chestnut, to blues like Valdeon encased in Sycamore, or hard cheeses like Pecorino di Noce, rolled in Walnut leaves. They're a greatly unique option and are standout additions to any gourmet cheese platters, especially for the fall.
