Wisconsin: putting the "pro" in provolone
We get it: you wouldn't necessarily peg Wisconsin as the pinnacle of provolone. What's a Midwest American Dairyland got to do with Italian cheesemaking artistry?
Plenty. Turns out that in the 1800s many Italian cheesemakers made their way to the rolling hills of Wisconsin where they saw a lot to like, cheese-wise. Since that time, we've basically turned Wisconsin into the State of Cheese, with 9 of every 10 drops of milk our cows produce ending up in our cheesemaking cauldrons. Today, our 1,200 cheesemakers produce more than 600 varieties of cheese – more than anywhere else in the world. And we've got the only Master Cheesemaker program in the world apart from the one in Switzerland. It's no wonder we've won more awards for our cheese than any other state or country on the planet.
What does that mean for provolone? Well, it means when you've got Wisconsin provolone at the party, in the kitchen or on your plate, you're in the presence of some of the best cheese in the world – making the world seem a little bit brighter.
