Italian Sheep Cheese Pecorino Romano description:

Pecorino Romano - sheep’s milk hard cheese, cut cheese - up to 17 lb, Italy.

Pecora in Italian means sheep and Pecorino Romano is one of Italy's oldest cheeses. Legend has it that a shepherd filled his flask with sheep's milk before a long trip and the motion during the trip caused the milk to naturally ferment. The idea for a new cheese was born. Today most Pecorino is made in Sardina Italy. With its fine flavor Pecorino's popularity as a grating cheese has grown significantly in the U.S. Since sheep only give milk for 6-7 months a year all production must satisfy the public's demand for the entire year. This slightly spicy, sharp, tangy sheep’s milk cheese gets increasingly robust with age.
