Description

Weight: 200g* piece

Crafted exclusively from sheep's milk, this delicious Pecorino Romano PDO from Argiolas Formaggi is a must-have for your culinary adventures. Dating back to ancient Rome, this artisanal cheese is similar in texture and flavour to parmesan.

Using traditional methods, each wheel undergoes a meticulous process, resulting in a stunning straw-colour and close texture. Hand-salted multiple times, the cheese develops a tangy depth of flavour and is aged for over eight months, achieving a dry, granular texture.

Grate this exceptional Pecorino Romano onto your next pasta bake, sprinkle it over pizzas and pastas, or shave it into paper-thin slices to enhance your salads. For a traditional Italian dinner, try tossing it into your next Cacio e Pepe. Indulge in the rich history and superior quality of this artisanal cheese.

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 and Pepe, Carbonara and Amatriciana. Can also be used in the preparation of fresh pesto.
