Legend has it that Mozzarella was first made when cheese curds accidentally fell into a pail of hot water in a cheese factory near Naples.
The Neapolitan cheese craftsmen started making Mozzarella cheese from the rich milk of Water Buffalo. Because it was not made from pasteurized milk and there was no refrigeration the cheese had a very short shelf-life and seldom left the southern region of Naples where it was created.
As the cheese technology, refrigeration and transportation systems developed the cheese spread to other regions of Italy. To this day, it is widely known that the best and most highly prized handcrafted buffalo mozzarella is still found south of Naples near Lettere, Battipaglia and Caserta.
With the warm breeze rolling in from the Gulf of Naples into their rustic kitchen in Lettere, Gennaro Romano and his wife Anna worked diligently with partial skim milk to create the “Caseificio Romano” - a cheese house. This was in the heart of the 1925. The Mozzarella was traditionally made of buffalo milk, Gennaro introduced in his factory a combination of whole cow milk producing a “Fior di Latte”. This mozzarella was sold and distributed from its humble origins in Lettere throughout the Naples, spanning from the Salerno to the rocky cliffs of Roma.
In 1961, Caseificio Factory changed hands, passing to Gennaro’s son, Vittorio. He kept the original name of the factory and increased production. The family-run cheese factory became well known within Italy for its handmade authentic buffalo Mozzarella and Fior di Latte.
Up to date the Caseificio is a family run artisan cheese farm. Today, Vittorio’s son Francesco Romano, reputable fine dining chef, continues the tradition of cheese art and maintains all operations in the factory, from the creation, to the production, to the sales of Caseificio hand-crafted cheeses.
In 2015 Francesco Romano, the corporate executive chef of Thunder Road Group, brought the Caseificio cheese technology to Thunder Road Pizza & Grill restaurant menu.
