Casatella Trevigiana PDO

The origins of the name
The name Casatella does not come from the Latin Caseus, meaning "cheese", but from "casa" (home), not only referring to the place housing the ancient rural families formed by many people, but also to the main member of the family, the mother, the "woman of the household".
As a matter of fact, in the area of Treviso the cheese processing activity was usually referred to women, who were able to obtain simple and delicious products for the whole family from the limited available resources. Among these products, Casatella.
Originally it was called "Casada", a local term indicating it was made "at home". This is confirmed by the fact that even today, in Treviso dialect, every product, whether bread, sausage, polenta or anything else, is called "de casada", if it is made within the family and is therefore considered as to be healthy and genuine. From "Casada" came "Casata", which then became "Casatela".
