When Gennaro Auricchio founded his cheese shop in 1877, he did so with one purpose: to create the most delicious provolone in all of Italy. Utilizing a special rennet, Auricchio created a cheese that was rich, creamy, and nutritious — and the envy of every cheese shop in Italy. Since that day Auricchio has expanded its line of provolone cheeses, but remains true to Gennaro's original formula.
The Lombardy region and its principal city of Milan serve as Italy's art and fashion capital. Spanning over varied landscapes from the Swiss Alps to the Po Valley, Lombard cuisine is appreciably different from its counterparts to the south, featuring buttery and meaty dishes more common to Central Europe than the Mediterranean region.
