Only one new cheese this week. I was so busy inhaling the fresh mozarella, the Fourme d'Ambert (wrapped in prosciutto di parma - Oh My!!), Parmigiano Reggiano, and the Drunken Goat that I didn't have a chance to try any other new cheese except for Caciocavallo. It's a hard cow's milk cheese from Italy. It's slightly salty. It comes in an unusual giant pear shape and legend has it that it originally was made from mare's milk.
I had a smoked version that was fantastic. The only problem I found is that it dried out extremely quickly.
