Provolone Piccante Cheese - 10 Months

A sharp version of the classic Provolone cheese, Provolone Piccante is made in the same way as regular provolone, from cow's milk cheese, using a pulled curd method that's similar to mozzarella. Known as pasta filata or “stretched out” curd, Provolone Piccante is left to age and mature, in this case 10 months. The aged provolone cheese develops a great spiciness and sharpness, with that classic saltiness and full-bodied milky flavor.

Unlike American Provolone cheese, which is soft and more “deli” like, Italian Provolone Piccante is drier and, saltier, and much more flavorful. It’s perfectly suitable for grating, so feel free to grate over pizzas, pannini, or grilled cheese. It’s great for melting – grating makes it even easier to melt – so incorporate it to cassserolles, baked potatoes, fondue, pasta, and risotto. In Argentina, this type of cheese is used in a grilled “provoleta”, a melted, golden-crusted Provolone disc that’s melted on the hot grill (check our Grilled Provolone Burger Recipe!).

Product Reviews

The creaminess of provolone with a bit of sharpness. A great pizza cheese.
Johanna from Riverdale Park, MD
This is great for a fresh veggie pizza with spinach !!
Joy from Chicago, IL
Good Provolone, much better than the ones from the store. But still not the one I'm looking for with the strong provolone taste....I will keep looking :)

Grilled Provolone Chimichurri Burger Recipe
Grilled Provolone Chimichurri Burger Recipe
In Argentina, thick rounds of provolone cheese are grilled to golden, melted perfection and cut-up and served with toothpicks as appetizers while the rest of the bbq is finished. We took that concept and literally plopped it over a perfect burger, and served it with another South American classic, a spicy chimichurri sauce.
