Say Cheese! Provoleta, Grilled Provolone

A whole cow's milk cheese native to Southern Italy, provolone is now produced in other regions of the world. It has a mild flavor and semifirm texture. The cheese comes in various forms, ranging from a long salami-like shape to a squat-pear formation ideal for hanging. Provolone has a cream-colored rind and white to light-yellow interior.

Provoleta, or grilled provolone cheese, is a classic Argentine dish. The cheese is normally served at the Argentine grill fest known as an asado, but it makes a wonderful starter to any alfresco meal.
