Squacquerone di Romagna PDO
The only cheese that “oozes”.
Lo Squacquerone di Romagna PDO, traditionally served with the famous Romagna flatbread, ‘piadina’, is a pearl white fresh cheese made with cow’s milk. It is packed with local enzymes which give it its unbeatable liquid consistency. It is made from milk from Castel San Pietro Terme and the neighbouring areas, so is all locally sourced. Caseificio Comellini is one of the original producers of this PDO for real foodies, so beware of imitations!

What a history!
Squacquerone di Romagna PDO cheese dates back to ancient times when it was produced in the Romagna countryside during the winter months. It was so delicious, in 1800 Cardinal Bellisomi, Bishop of Cesena, sang its praises in his letters!
And the winner is...
After giving this cheese a second lease of life, in 2012 the Caseificio Comellini dairy, in conjunction with the Squacquerone Association, completed the legal procedure to obtain Protected Designation of Origin status. That same year, our 100% specialty from Emilia-Romagna was awarded first prize at the ALMA Caseus competition for the best cow’s milk cheese in the ‘Gran Mercato’ category. In 2019 it received the Dino Villani Award from the Italian Academy of Cuisine for the most outstanding artisan product.
“If there’s something going on between piadina and rocket, it’s Squacquerone di Romagna PDO”
You can’t say you’ve had a real Romagna ‘piadina’ if it didn’t have Squacquerone in it: nothing goes better with this specialty flatbread than this delicious cheese! Mouth-wateringly good when paired with caramelised figs too.
Pasteurised cow’s MILK, local enzymes, salt, rennet.
