Pecorino Romano

Similar 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

Just as tasty as what I had in Italy! Great job. Great price. Great amount.

This is a great all purpose Cheese. We buy the quarter, cut up into reasonable chunks and vacuum pack them. They easily keep until we have used them all and then reorder and repeat..
