Hand-Formed Aged Caciocavera

Hand-Formed Aged Caciocavera

from 7.25

Everything great about provolone style cheese comes together in this hand-formed legend. Earthy and buttery with slight caramel notes and a nutty finish; Aged Caciocavera rides the line between subtle and bold. Flavor and texture meld into the savory experience of a raw Jersey cow's milk cheese. Delightful as a table cheese, yet extremely versatile in the kitchen.  The milk for all of our hand-crafted cheeses is from family owned single- source dairies and is hormone and pesticide free.

Second place winner of the 2014 American Cheese Society Annual cheese conference.
