We took the Sita bus from Praiano and were met at the stop by Christopher who escorted us the rest of the way. Upon arrival at the factory we were introduced to our tour guide Sara and given a disposable outfit to wear. Very attractive I might add. The tour begins with the first drop of milk and follows the cheese making process all the way to the drying room.
At the end of the tour we were given the chance to try our hand at braiding our own mozzarella. What a cool experience. It’s not as easy as Sara’s daddy makes it look in this video we shot.
After the tour we were brought into the tasting room where a platter of cheese and wine awaited us.
Sara spent time with us going over each of the different cheeses and answering all our questions…and boy did we have a lot of questions. Most importantly…can we bring some cheese back to the US? (answer below)
Visiting Caseificio Michelangelo was a truly unique experience and I would recommend it to anyone visiting the area.
**As for bringing cheese into the US...customs says you may bring in cheese as long as it’s not the soft spreadable kind. But I can tell you from experience you can NOT bring in salami.
