Food History

Caciocavallo is a Southern Italian stretched curd cheese with a pear-like shape. Its name refers to its method of aging. In Italian, “a cavallo” refers to how a person is seated on horseback; similarly, the cheeses are tied at the neck with a string and hung from a wooden pole, the cheese dangling from either side like the legs of a horseback rider hanging over a horse’s back.

Caciocavallo is used in traditional Italian cooking or eaten on its own. For this last mode of consumption, the best type of caciocavallo is Caciocavallo Podolico, which is produced exclusively with the Podolico cow’s milk, an ancient and wild breed from Asia that is able to adapt itself to tough environmental conditions.
In Italy, this breed is raised in Campania, Calabria, Basilicata, and Puglia in semi-wild or wild conditions.
The diet that the Podolica cow gets from foraging determines the aromatic qualities of products derived from its milk. The scarce quantity of produced makes this cheese a rare and prized specialty.
