Did You Know Some of Italy's Best Cheeses are in Le Marche?

Did You Know Some of Italy's Best Cheeses are in Le Marche? | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

a visit to Le Marche is essential for any cheese connoisseur. In this mountainous area where armies of sheep, goats and cows spill over the countryside, you’ll find both Marchigiano versions of well-known products like pecorino and ricotta, as well as a slew of other cheeses that are specific to the region, among them casecc, slattato, luna gialla, cacio in forma di limone and Michelangelo’s favorite, Casciotta di Urbino, offering exceptionally rich tastes and terroir-defined flavors. If a village doesn’t produce a particular cheese it will at least have a unique take on one from a nearby town. [...]

The Small family-run dairy farm in the wild mountains of Le Marche

The Small family-run dairy farm in the wild mountains of Le Marche | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

[...] High up in the mountain top village of Cupi, however, a little revolution is under way. The villages of Monte Sibillini are beginning to slowly come back to life.
Beniamino Ciammarucchi is stirring up a cauldron of boiling sheep’s milk in a brand new stainless steel kitchen. He son Arcangelo is delivering huge milk churns that are being loaded into the dairy.
In the late 1980s Beniamino left his home village to settle in down in the valleys of Le Marche. Summers spent on the high pastures and wintering his flock in the low lying fields near Rome was no longer economical and new regulations brought an end to the traditional ways of producing cheese.
After generations of sheep herding and cheese making his son Arcangelo was forced to take a job in a factory producing cookers and fridges. He longed for the shepherd life that was in his blood and decided that he would return to Cupi and set up a modern dairy producing top class artisan cheese.
It was a lucky move. He secured a bank loan just before the crash of 2008 and in its wake the factory where had had been working closed down. “Everyone thought he was crazy,” laughs his father. “They thought Cupi was the end of the world but the irony is all his friends lost their jobs and many of them are still unemployed. Look at Arcangelo he built a business.” [...]
