    Description

    The name Pecorino is given to a cheese made entirely of sheep's milk and many varieties can be found across Italy.

    Our Pecorino has been made in the Lazio region for thousands of years and was traditionally eaten by Roman soldiers! Pecorino Romano is one of Italy's oldest cheeses and features heavily in Roman cuisine! This Pecorino has been made with raw sheep's milk (giving it an authentic rural taste) and aged in ancient vaults. It is a hard, ivory coloured cheese that is both salty and sharp.

    Unpasteurised sheep's milk.

    Serving suggestions
    Excellent eaten as a table cheese, Pecorino pairs well with chilli pepper jam, citrus fruit marmalades such as citron and bergamot and also fig and pear mustards and jams. With regard to wine accompaniments, we suggest a bold red such as Negroamaro or Chianti!

    Pecorino is also good for cooking with. It is often grated and is an essential ingredient in traditional roman pasta dishes such as Cacio e Pepe, Carbonara and Amatriciana. This cheese can also be used in the preparation of fresh pesto.

    Storage
    Keep wrapped in naturally waxed paper in the fridge, ideally inside a slightly opened container so that the cheese still gets some oxygen. Pecorino should keep for 3-4 weeks. Remember to remove from the fridge an hour or so before serving to bring the cheese up to room temperature.
