Italian cheese has a long and storied history, one that began over two-thousand years ago in ancient Rome. Ahead of their time in so many ways, the Romans were the first to invent a cheese press. They were also the earliest to experiment with aging cheeses, exposing them to different environments and conditions to observe the impact made on flavor and texture. In fact, cheesemaking was so popular that the Romans even created a specific kitchen devoted to the act of cheesemaking called a “caseale." Most towns even had a designated area in which to smoke homemade cheeses.

This passion for cheese, coupled with a seemingly endless curiosity and an impressive amount of ingenuity, soon helped refine the craft and made the Romans the world's foremost cheese experts. The Roman empire was second to none in terms of size, at this point in history, and their cheesy innovations were soon spreading through most of Europe. Responsible in-part for many of our favorite European cheeses, they helped to lay the foundation for modern-day cheesemaking techniques and many of today's best-loved cheeses! From delicious aged Asiago and decadent truffled Pecorino to fresh and milky Mozzarella, there are so many fantastic Italian cheeses to choose from, each of the highest quality possible!
