Wikipedia: Provolone
Provolone (pronounced [provoˈloːne], English: /ˌproʊvəˈloʊni, ˌproʊvəˈloʊn/) is an Italian cheese. It is an aged pasta filata (stretched-curd) cheese originating in Campania near Vesuvius, where it is still produced in pear, sausage, or cone shapes 10 to 15 cm (4 to 6 in) long. Provolone-type cheeses are also produced in other countries.
