Caciocavallo is an Italian raw cow’s milk cheese named for the fact that it’s rope bound and hung astride wooden boards for aging. (Cacio means cheese; a cavallo means on horseback.) It’s a stretched curd cheese similar to provolone but with a subtler flavor. Tonight we’ll be featuring it paired with pesto in one of our three special Panini for grilled cheese night.

We’ve got Spring Fever!

April 20th, 2017 Posted by Cheese Counter, Retail, TRiO Wine Beer Cheese News 0 thoughts on “We’ve got Spring Fever!”

Literally. One of our favorite new cheeses in the case is Spring Fever from NC’s own Prodigal Farm. While all their other cheeses are made with milk from their own goat herd, this wrinkled-rind beauty is is their first cow’s milk cheese made using milk from the Jersey herd over at Reverence Farms. Both farms are committed to pasture-based, humane-focused animal husbandry and it shows in the quality of the milk and resulting cheeses. This one’s mild but with a surprising complexity for young cow’s milk cheese. It’s on the cheese board in the bistro today or just stop by the cheese counter for a taste.
