Pecorino in Walnut Leaves (Foglie di Noce)

Also known as Foglie di Noce, this classic hard sheep's milk cheese from the region of Emilia Romagna is presented wrapped in walnut leaves. The tradition is thousands of years old, started as a way to protect the cheese while in the caves during the ageing process, and is now continued as it gives the cheese a wonderful nutty aroma and flavor. The cheese is like a traditional pecorino, hard but buttery, with the intensity of an aged sheep's milk cheese, and the added grassy flavor and fragrance of the leaves. Serve in a cheese plate, sliver over a fresh salad or grate over pasta and risotto.
