Caciocavallo Smoked sold as a 200g piece

Caciocavallo is perhaps the oldest existing pasta filata or drawn curd cheese. Its origins are lost in time but it was mentioned as early as the first century by the Roman writer Columella and may well go back even beyond the Romans. One theory as to the origin of its name has it that its name derives from “horseback cheese”, and that horsemen at one time suspended it from either side of their saddles in pouches made of leather or cloth, strung together by a rope but this is only one of many explanations
