Pecorino is a beloved sheep’s-milk cheese made in Italy. It joins our growing collection of essential international cheeses in our counter. Traditionally, Pecorino cheese was made in rural areas of Italy, where sheep farming was prevalent. The name, “Pecorino,” comes from the Italian word “pecora,” which means sheep. It serves as a good substitute for Parmigiano Reggiano. Pecorino cheese has a tangy and slightly salty taste, which intensifies with age. Its distinctive aroma is strong, and it features salty, smoky, spicy, and sharp flavour notes, making it a versatile ingredient in both traditional and modern dishes.
