It is a very special cake parfait with a sweet and slightly salty flavor, the ingredients are made from eggs, Caciotta, cedar and dark chocolate; shear has three characteristic layers of three different colors: yellow for the egg, white for the cheese and brown for chocolate.
Its name is derived by the main ingredient:  the cheese. The tradition traces its creation to the Pope’s visit to Pontecorvo ( papal enclave at the time), it is no coincidence that the colors of sweet reproduce, in the original recipe without chocolate, white and yellow papal flag.
