Caciosalame is a relatively recent creation. Antonio Di Nucci made a Caciosalame for the first time in the 1960’s. His friend Augusto asked him to hide a Soppressata in a Caciocavallo so that it could be shipped to the U.S.A. as cheese. In the Museum of Transhumance, a family letter tells this story of Italian emigration and reveals how and for whom this cheese was created.
Features: caciosalame is a combination of cheese and cured meat (the Caciocavallo is wrapped round the Soppressata). It is around 20 cm. long and 8 cm. wide.
Serving suggestions: remove caciosalame from the paper or plastic bag and cut it into thin slices. Serve at room temperature. Keep it refrigerated in a plastic wrap.
