Provolone hails from Basilicata and is one of the better known Italian cheeses, it is hard but not too dry and generally has a tangy flavour. Wrapping it in Hay, however, completely changes the game. A naturally occurring chemical reaction takes place between the cheese and the hay, which brings out the natural flavours in the cheese, intensifying the flavour. Provolone lovers rejoice, this is your favourite cheese better than you’ve ever tasted it before.

Equally at home on a cheeseboard and in the best cheese sandwich you’ve ever eaten. Melt it for beauty in a mouthful.

Basilicata region map

Provenance: Basilicata

Basilicata is embedded between Calabria and Apulia, in the south of Italy. One does not stumble across this region accidentally but chooses to visit it in search of a new experience, plunging into places where silence, colors, scents and flavors remove the visitor from the frenzy and stress of modern life and offer unique sensations.

The woods and forests that cover the mountains are dotted with small and charming villages, some even at an altitude of 1000 mt, where pure air, genuine flavors and the beauties of nature are combined with historical vestiges satisfying every curiosity. Beautiful — yet less traversed than other regions — is the area of the Monticchio Lakes, one of the most spectacular locations in Basilicata.

Lake Grande and Lake Piccolo are two splendid stretches of water that fill the two craters of Mount Vulture, now extinct, and are surrounded by thick and lush vegetation.

Even though it is a mainly internal region, Basilicata touches two seas: the Ionian and Tyrrhenian. The Ionic coast, with the two famous sea resorts of Metaponto and Policoro, offers wide beaches, either sandy or pebbly, and partially surrounded by pinewoods and rows of eucalyptus that give off a lovely scent. The Gulf of Policastro, on the Tyrrhenian side, has higher and more indented coasts, where steep promontories alternate with small beaches washed by a crystal-clear sea.

The provinces of the region are Potenza (regional capital) and Matera.
