Toons Bridge Dairy Cacio Cavallo Occhiato


Toons Bridge Dairy Cacio Cavallo Occhiato

Origin: Made in our Dairy at Toonsbridge, Macroom, West Cork.


We make Cacio Cavallo Occhiato in 5 to 6 kg rounds using raw cow's milk, whey starter and calf rennet. The cheese is hung in a fine net bag, and left to mature in a warm room. Cacio Cavallo Occhiato develops propionic bacteria, which is the very same bacteria present in emmental cheese, and which creates holes otherwise know as "eyes" in the cheese. This propionic activity also gives the cheese a beautiful nutty flavour.

Fridge Life: 2 weeks
