Pecorino with Chilli
Weight: 250g (approx.)
From the beautiful and completely unspoilt National Park of the Sila Mountains in Calabria comes this semi-matured cheese (aged for 10-15 days), which has been artisanally made on the Grillo family farm with a mixture of sheep (around 95%) & goat milk (around 5%) and a sprinkling of Calabrian peperoncino flakes. It is a semi-hard cheese which is quite salty and pleasingly spicy! The level of protein in this cheese mean that it is of a particularly high nutritional value.
Our spicy Sila Mountain cheese comes shrink-wrapped. Once open wrap well with foil and it will keep in the fridge for around a week.
Sheep's milk (95%), goat's milk (5%), rennet, salt, chilli (0.02%)
Fattoria Bio is a beautiful, huge organic family farm in the Sila Mountains in Calabria run by Mario and the rest of the Grillo family. The family's love of their land and of their free range animals shines through their products. The uncontaminated setting and the pure water of the Silane springs adds to the unique taste of the organic products produced on the Fattoria Bio farm which are the pride of the Grillo family.
Fattoria Bio has kept alive the traditions of the families of shepherds who have worked this land for four long generations. The farm covers about 100 hectares in Sila and 50 in Rossano and twice a year even today the shepherds make the journey from the mountains down to the Marina - a 55km pilgrimage which follows the seasons and nature,
