The position of adjectives is driving me nuts. In English we would simply say cheddar cheese, or cotto salami, with the adjective always before the noun. I understand that in most cases the adjective goes after the noun in Italian, but how about such things as a type of cheese? Is it formaggio mascarpone, or what? Can you help me with some simple rules for placement of adjectives in Italian, or should I always put them after the noun and hope for the best? Bob Cairns P.S. Thanks for the help with egg yolks.
