Product Description

A sharp, air-dried variation of provolone from Sicily.

All of our cheeses are hand-cut, by humans. For this reason, our product weights may fluctuate between 7oz and 9 oz.
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 it's cousin provolone, though with a drier texture that gives the cheese a distinct al dente style quality. Caciocavallo is best enjoyed with spicier Italian cured meats such as our very own Sicilian Pepperoni or Hot Toscano Salami.
