About Pecorino RomanoSimilar to Parmigiano-Reggiano, and often used as a substitution, Italian Pecorino Romano is never a secondary choice. This hard cheese, excellent for grating, is made in Lazio, Italy under strict supervision of a consortium that ensures quality control and processes. Dry-salted by hand, the large wheels get a salting several times, producing a great flavor. The long aging for this Italian sheep cheese produces the dry and granular texture, and strong taste. Essential for grating over pastas and vegetable dishes, with that characteristic aroma of sheep's milk. Pair with a hearty red wine
