Description

The Cheesemaker’s Choice is a great gift and an ideal way to explore some of our classic & limited edition cheeses!  Your pack will include:
– Provola Riserva – A 6-month aged version of our popular Provola.  Our curd is hand-stretched by our cheesemakers, then brined and hung in our aging cave for at least 6 months.  The extended aging process removes excess moisture, resulting in smooth, firm consistency and a sharp, tangy flavor.  A great slice-and-eat cheese or perfect on a sandwich!  Approx. 8oz.
Provola Piccante Riserva – Certified Calabrian Peperoncino flakes are incorporated into our Provola during the stretching process before brining, and then the cheese is aged in our cave for at least 6 months.  A sharp tangy cheese with a kick!  Approx. 8oz.
Fresh Fior di Latte (cow’s milk mozzarella) – Hand-stretched cow’s milk mozzarella, made in the traditional Italian style without any vinegar or citric acid.  The result is a rich, creamy taste unlike any other mozzarella sold in stores.  Perfect for a seasonal caprese, baked pasta, or on pizza!  Approx. 8oz.
Fresh Ricotta (whey-based) – Perfect in a cannoli or just on its own for a protein-packed snack, this is not the same product as the milk-based ricotta you find in the supermarket!  Our ricotta is made by harvesting the whey from our cheesemaking and re-cooking (ricotta is Italian for “re-cooked”!) it to create this soft, custard-like cheese.  It’s smooth texture and delicious flavor make it perfect for both sweet and savory applications. (1-1.25 lbs. per basket)
– Vecchio (Ricotta Salata) – Our whey-based ricotta, salted and aged for at least 6 weeks (vecchio is Italian for ‘old’!)  Higher in moisture than traditional Ricotta Salata, allowing for a funky rind development that gives this cheese a distinct flavor, totally unexpected from a whey-based cheese. Perfect for grating or slicing. American Cheese Society 2017 1st place winner – “Traditional Regional Italian Cheese”!  2017 Good Food Awards Finalist!  Approx 4oz.
– Included in all Gift Packs:  Homemade Pepper Jelly!  Made from sweet bell peppers & the perfect accompaniment to any of our cheeses!
**As available – substitutions may be made if one of these cheeses is out of stock.
Caputo Brothers Creamery uses only Animal Welfare Approved, non-GMO feed, pasture-based milk from local, family-owned dairy farms.  We are committed to paying a fair price to farmers for the high quality milk they produce!  All of our cheeses are naturally fermented, made without vinegar or citric acid.
