caciocavallo -

Caciocavallo is a type of Italian filata cheese made with pasteurized cow's milk. The word cavallo in Italian means "horse". That's why many think that this cheese was first made using horse milk. But there is no evidence that this cheese is made with horse milk.

Another explanation states that the name of this cheese comes from the method of manufacture that hung a pair of cheese on a pole like the saddle of a horse. The shape of this cheese is round or conical with the smaller ends.

Caciocavallo cheese skin is smooth and has a light brown or yellow color. Sometimes in the process of making a lump of butter is placed on the inside of the cheese so that when the cheese is cut the butter flows out.
