Caciocavallo literally translates to the “Horse Cheese” or more like “over the horseback cheese.” The name comes from the tradition of making and tying together in pairs and then hanging over a long elevated pole to age.
Caciocavallo originates from Southern Italy and is a traditional stretched curd cheese made from cow milk. It is stretched into a natural gourd or teardrop shape with a knot at the top so that it can be tied at the thin end with a cord to hang.
