Caprino lombardo cheese

Region: Lombardia

Milk: Goat

Definition: Fresh cheese.

Raw material: Pure goats' milk or mixed ewes' and cows' milk; from the French Chamois or Saanen goat breeds.

Characteristics: Height 3 cm; diameter 6-8 cm; form: small discs or elongated cylinders (length 10 cm); off-white light surface mould which darkens with aging.

Production area: Valsassina, Intelvi and Montevecchia (Como).

Production technique: Raw, lightly salted milk is heated to coagulation, adding whey starter culture. Coagulation takes 24 hours. The curds are extracted and placed into perforated moulds to drain off the whey; they are turned many times during the following 24 hours in order to facilitate draining. The curds are also seasoned with parsley, garlic, chives, pepper or sometimes ground pepper. Dry-salting is carried out during the 24-hour draining period. The cheese is sometimes dusted with ground pepper. Additives: potassium sorbate or chloride are sometimes used.

Maturing: Optional, 6-8 months approximately; preserved in oil with bay leaves in glass jars.
