Caciocavallo

Caciocavallo, means "cheese on horseback" in italian, it gets its name from the manner in which the cheese is tied together with a rope and dangled over a wooden board to drain and age.

 

With continued ageing, the cheese picks up intense, earthy undertones and fruity aromas. Along the way, it turns from a milky white colour to a darker yellow and develops more profound tasting notes. ViaVio makes the traditional pear-like shaped Caciocavallo.

 

ViaVio also makes Smoked Caciocavallo using a cold smoking curing method.

This adds a subtle nuances of meaty and toasty flavor to the earthy undertones and fruity aromas of traditional Caciocavallo.

                  region in the 50’s to give the consumer a milder pasteurised option to Fontina (a strong raw milk alpine cheese). It takes its  characteristics from both Fontina and the Swiss Emmental – its name comes from these two cheeses.

Scamorza has a deeper, more intense cheese flavour than halloumi and adds further interest to any dish. It can simply be heated and melted slowly on the BBQ then eaten warm (to avoid the cheese getting too hard). It matches very well with bruschetta, ham, eggplant, mushrooms and any cooked vegetable.
