Pecorino di Toscano DOP

Tuscany's most popular cheese, extra aged for flavor's sake.

Pecorino is the cheese of Tuscany, the most commonly found, the best made, the most used. It's also almost invariably really, really good.

Made from sheep's milk, this sweet, nutty cheese is perfect on pasta, with fava beans or served alongside some good salami and prosciutto. You can usually buy it quite young, when it's still soft. We prefer it at about eight to twelve months old—like this one—when its bolder flavors come through. Serve at room temperature, but don't be worried if it sweats a bit of oil; sheep's milk cheeses are high in butterfat, so they tend to “weep” a little.
