Calabro's story begins in the mountains of Sicily, where the Calabro family turned fresh milk into their signature cheeses. In 1948, they left Sicily to start new lives in America. By 1953, the family had founded the Calabro brand, delivering cheese, sausage, and ice cream to Italian grocers and families in Connecticut. Today, Calabro has grown their operations, distributing their cheeses to 27 states in the US.
Calabro produces a variety of cheeses, including ricotta, mozzarella, and mascarpone cheeses. Supermarket Italy offers their scamorza and caciocavallo cheeses. Scamorza is a semi-soft cheese made from cow's milk. Caciocavallo is a traditional Sicilian cow's milk cheese with a name that translates to "cheese on horseback." This name comes from the way the cheese is prepared, by drying cheese curds over a branch, much like a saddlebag. Calabro also produces smoked versions of both of these cheeses, flavored with smoke from hardwoods. With free shipping on orders over $75, Supermarket Italy is a great place to stock up on cheeses made in the Sicilian tradition.
