Puglian Semi-aged Cheeses: A Treasure of Tradition

Puglian cheeses represent an invaluable gastronomic heritage. Among these, semi-aged cheeses are particularly appreciated for their balanced taste and versatility in cooking. Let's discover the main characteristics of these typical products of the Puglian tradition.

Scamorza: A Classic of Puglian Tradition

Scamorza is one of the most well-known typical Puglian cheeses. It is distinguished by its characteristic shape and soft texture. This semi-aged cheese can be consumed fresh or smoked, offering two highly appreciated taste variants. Smoked scamorza, in particular, pairs perfectly with cold cuts and rustic bread.

Caciocavallo: Intense and Versatile Flavor

Caciocavallo, available in both smoked and unsmoked versions, is another pillar of semi-aged cheeses. This cheese has a firm texture and a strong flavor, making it ideal for grating over pasta dishes or serving as an appetizer. Smoked caciocavallo adds a smoky note that makes it even more interesting for discerning palates.

Cacioricotta: The Perfect Pairing with Orecchiette

Among the typical semi-aged cheeses of Puglia, cacioricotta deserves a special mention. This cheese is perfect for grating over orecchiette with tomato sauce, a symbolic dish of Puglian cuisine. Cacioricotta, with its unique flavor and particular texture, enriches any pasta dish, giving it an authentic and traditional touch.
