An unusually shaped aged cow's milk cheese originating in Sicily, Caciocavallo has slowly spread across the eastern Mediterranean under various names. Caciocavallo is made in a process similar to Mozzarella or provolone, with the curd being hand spun into the distinctive pear shape and then hung to dry for a minimum of two weeks, though in the case of our cheese, many months longer. Caciocavallo has a sharp flavor similar to its cousin provolone, though with a drier texture that gives the cheese a distinct al dente style quality. The Smoked version of this cheese has an even sharper quality that is accentuated by the smoky flavor. Smoked Caciocavallo pairs with a wide variety of olives and Italian cured meats.
