Some refer to Provolone as Italy's national cheese. It was originally produced in Campania in the southern part of the country. Curiously, Provolone production is now centered in the north in the Piedmont and Lombardy regions. Like mozzarella, Provolone is a pasta filata cheese, meaning that it is produced by stretching fresh curds into a taffy-like consistency. In the case of mozzarella, the cheese is sold and served fresh. For Provolone, the stretched curd is molded into a pear or torpedo shape, then tied with rope and hung in an aging cave for 3 to 12 months.

Perhaps the most famous Provolone producer is Auricchio, a family business that dates back to 1877. Recently, Auricchio opened a plant in the US to satisfy the excessive demand for their Provolone for the American market. The Auricchio Provolone Piccante available on igourmet.com is the authentic imported-from-Italy version, aged for 12 months and offering a sharp, spicy flavor that tickles the tongue. It is excellent as part of an antipasto course, paired with olives and red wine. Keep in mind that this aged Provolone is quite sharp, meaning that a little bit goes a long way.

Perfect Provolone
We have been searching for a long time for this type of Provolone and this one surely did meet all of our expectations.

The BEST CHEESE.. The BEST Service
My brother lives in Louisiana. There is nowhere for him to get the real imported Provolone cheese we have here in New Jersey. He has loved it since childhood. Until I stumbled on your website. We were clumsily stuffing it into cheap wrapping envelopes!! Your service delivered it in 42 HOURS!! Fresh.. Clean and ready to eat to one of the more remote spots in our country!!! Great job! We WILL BE USING YOUR Company again!

Provolone cheese
Provolone is great. My only problem is the price of the cost to ship this item which almost equals the price of the cheese.

Provolone cheese
My only problem with the provolone was at the wax end. This part of the cheese had a hard spot, whereas, the rest of cheese was great. Other than that the cheese was great and I would purchase it again.

excellant quality
I enjoyed both of the cheeses that I purchased. I made eggplant parmigian and it was quite tasty.

My favorite provolone
Can't be beat. Best with any hard salami and some sweet roasted peppers at room temperature. Yum Oh!

There is provolone and then there is PROVOLNE!
None better. Just the right amount of sharpness. It has a moderately firm texture that slices easily with a knife when it is at room temperature.

I would recommend this!
Ordering was easy. Cheese was almost as good as the cheese Nana got from CT. Delivered as promised.

Great Cheese but shipping charges are high
The cheese is excellent but unfortunatly I ship it to a family member in Puerto Rico and the shipping charges are high in my opinion.

Great service
The one I sent the gift to said it was boxed lovely. They have not let me know if contents were tasty, but I'm sure they were , they love that kind of cheese. Thank you for such fast service. If I could change things, we could include a wine sent with our gift basket.
