After achieving cheese nirvana during a recent trip to Spain, I was excited to explore the cheeses in Italy. With the bar set high by the wonderful Spanish manchego cheese, we arranged a visit to a cheese making factory near the small Puglian town of Cisternino in southeastern Italy. The owner welcomed us warmly and carried us back to where workers were making fresh mozzarella, cachiocavella, and other cow milk cheeses. The workers were very proud of their work, and seemed excited to show their craft to interested visitors. There's nothing like having a taste of the freshest cheese you can get, directly from the pots!
