One of Italian cuisine’s most prestigious cheeses and perfect for thousands of recipes: pasta, risotto, salads, summer dishes and tasty appetizers which are quick to prepare.
Pecorino Romano is a hard, salty Italian cheese, suitable primarily for grating, made out of sheep milk (the Italian word pecora, from which the name derives, means sheep). Pecorino Romano was produced in Latium up to 1884 when, due to the prohibition issued by the city council of salting the cheese inside their shops in Rome, many producers moved to the island of Sardinia (like Auricchio). It is produced exclusively from the milk of sheep raised on the plains of Lazio and in Sardinia. Pecorino Romano, the world’s most popular grated cheese that is exported around the globe, is a fragrant, aged cheese that comes in a natural version or with a black coating. Produced in Sardinia, this cheese has existed for centuries. It has received the D.O.P.seal and is rightfully one ofItaly’s most prestigious traditional cheeses.
Pecorino Romano P.D.O., produced in Sardinia, has a centuries-old tradition. Matured and fragrant, it is available au naturel or with the typical dark cappatura. It is a hard cheese, white or straw-yellow in color, whose typical aroma is reminiscent of sheep’s milk.
Its characteristic flavor is aromatic and slightly piquant for a table cheese; Pecorino Romano, which is meant to be grated, is, however, piquant, intense and delightful thanks to a longer maturing.
