After years of requests from our cheese fans we have created a spicy Caciocavera; Diavolo. This hand shaped devil of a cheese is loaded with a blend of crushed red pepper, cayenne, and ghost pepper powder. Intensely Spicy! After brining, these cheeses are carefully powdered with cayenne and paprika for a stunningly red hot rind. A legend in the making; Diavolo brings the heat! The milk for all of our hand-crafted cheeses is from family owned single source dairies and is hormone and pesticide free.
