Squacquerone Cheese from Emilia Romagna
Dive into a bite of Italy's Emilia Romagna region with our authentic Squacquerone cheese. A gem from the provinces of Ravenna, Rimini, and Bologna, this cheese boasts a rich heritage, with its first documented traces dating back to the 1800s. The name "Squacquerone" is inspired by the Romagnolo dialect, hinting at its delightful creamy texture that "melts and becomes soft".
Crafted exclusively from cow’s milk of the Frisona, Bruna Alpina, and Romagnola breeds, it holds a delicate balance of creamy, mildly sweet, and slightly tangy flavors. Its aroma is reminiscent of fresh milk with an undertone of grassy fields, reflecting the rich pastures of Emilia Romagna. The cheese has a soft, creamy texture that molds to the shape of its container, presenting itself in a lustrous white hue.
Squaquerone is typically made using traditional cheese-making methods, including hand-stretching and aging in special rooms. It is a great source of calcium and protein, and its rich flavor and creamy texture make it a popular choice among cheese lovers.
