There are no bad selections from Cheesyplace but this has to be a top 10. We will be ordering it again. Perfect for hard cheese fans.

Pecorino Romano Cheese

The Facts

Country: Italy
Milk Type: Pasteurized sheep
Age: 5 months+

Tasting Notes:

An ancient cheese, the Pecorino (which simply means sheep's milk cheese) is one of the most widely used alternatives to Parmesan. However, the Pecorino Romano Cheese is a hard cheese, is quite salty, and boasts a sharper flavour. You will also notice spicy, nutty flavour notes.

Its flavour and texture make it an ideal cheese to grate over pasta or to use in other dishes that call for Parmesan.

This cheese is also great on its own, for snacking, or as part of a cheese platter. 

Pair with a Chianti or crisp Riesling.

Our cheese mongers hand cut every cheese to order. We will always try to cut the exact weight ordered, however your piece might be slightly over or under the amount listed. But please know that we cut it freshly and specifically for you.

If you order several cheeses, we will usually make up for shortcomings on weight, if any, on the other cheeses ordered.

All cheeses are wrapped in special cheese paper and sealed to preserve freshness during transit.

Every order includes all the necessary thermal packaging and ice packs required for current weather conditions. Our main focus is getting the freshest product delivered to your door.
