    Burrata

    Burrata is made with an external bag of thin stringy paste similar to that of ‘fiordilatte’ and is filled with cream mixed with milk enzymes and small off cuts (called ‘lucini’) of mozzarella.

    Caciocavallo

    This is the most famous and widely available cheese in the south of Italy. Its name derives from the way it is preserved – tied in pairs with a rope and hung (‘a cavallo’- on horseback) over a beam or a stick. In order to obtain a good Caciocavallo, the paste must be strung out [...]

    Caciocavallo Molisano

    Caciocavallo Molise is another fruit of the generous production in Southern Italy. A distinctive feature is essential and its texture by hand, which allows to obtain the ideal softness (the machinery to reverse damage products rather “gummy”).

    Caciocavallo Podolico

    This particular variety of Caciocavallo (considered the best and more noble example, defined by some as the Parmigiano Reggiano of the South) takes its name from the breed of cattle used for its production. The Podolica cows live in a free range condition in the Mediterranean brush, feeding on strongly aromatic grasses such as wild [...]

    Cacioricotta

    The production method, as suggested by its name, is midway between those used for cheeses and those used for ricotta. Rennet is added to the milk whilst contemporaneously bringing it almost to boiling point. It can be eaten fresh, as is currently the fashion, or can be successfully ripened.

    Campania Buffalo Mozzarella

    Unfortunately, buffalo milk Mozzarella was only been awarded denomination of protected origin (DOP) status in 1993, too late to prevent the generic name from being associated with stringy paste products made with cow’s milk. However, the Campania buffalo milk Mozzarella is still produced in the area which has been producing ‘mozzarellas’ or ‘provature’ possibly since [...]

    Canestrato from Apulia

    The name of this cheese derives from the fact that the forms are dried in basket (canestro) shaped containers, the signs of which are impressed on the product. A similar method for producing sheep’s cheese was described in the Odyssey.

    Canestrato Silano DOP

    Within the vast and somewhat generic production of ‘Caciocavallo’ or ‘Provoloni’ in southern Italy, the Silano variety represents a denomination of protected origin product since 1993.  Despite its name, it is not exclusively produced on the Sila but in five other regions of southern Italy or, rather, in the districts carefully specified by the regulations.

    Fiordilatte

    Whilst the name ‘Mozzarella’ is traditionally reserved for fresh stringy cheese made exclusively from buffalo milk, the expression ‘Fiordilatte’ (for which denomination of protected origin –DOP – status has been requested) indicates a much more widely available and well known cow’s milk version introduced over the past few decades due to the scarcity of buffalo [...]
