Formaggio di capra di Calabria cheese


Formaggio di capra di Calabria is made with unpasteurised goat’ milk and is produced from October to July throughout Calabria. The cheese is found under various names which indicate the area in which it is produced.

The cheese has a thin rind and the interior, when young, is a creamy-white which becomes more yellow-brown with age. The texture develops from buttery to grainy and the flavour, from sweet-sour to spicy, when it has small, but dense holes.

Shaped in baskets, the cheese is salted and dried and matures for about 2 months depending on the humidity. However, if it is to be eaten fresh, it takes between 10 days and one month to mature and if you want it hard enough to be grated it will take about 5-7 months.
