History

  • Provolone cheese is an Italian cheese that originated in Southern Italy, where it is still produced in various shapes and sizes.   In earlier times, Italian cheese makers heated curing rooms for Provolone with wood fires, which gave the cheese a smoke flavor.   Today, Provolone can be produced smoked or non-smoked. 

  • Producers originally tied rope around some cheese to hang the cheeses in the curing rooms.  The rope would come handy when people wanted to tie them to saddles to transport on horseback.
