Black and White Wednesday #3

There was another superb showing for last weeks Black and White Wednesday and if you haven't managed to take a look, I certainly encourage you to do so. For this week, my monochromatic attention has been directed to another food love of my life, cheese and in particular Caciocavallo.

Caciocavallo shares some similarities to the more well known Provolone but it's a cheese that was at one stage threatened with extinction - it's now been recognised with a DOP. It was originally made just in Puglia but you can find variations of it in other Southern Italian states.

This is an aged cheese and I think that shot in b&w that sense of ageing really comes through - that this has sat for some time in the cool and dark and slowly matured.


Remember, if you'd like to join in head over to Susan's site and acquaint yourself with the rules.
