Pecorino Romano


Pecorino Romano is produced in the Sardinia region of Italy. The taste is aromatic and pleasantly sharp. Pecorino Romano is most often used on pasta dishes. Its distinctive strong, very salty flavor means that it is preferred for some pasta dishes with highly-flavored sauces. The sharpness depends on the period of maturation, which varies. Our imported Pecorino is aged approximately 8 - 12 months.

    Situated in the Mediterranean sea, the picturesque island of Sardinia enjoys over 1200 miles of coastline and stunning mountain vistas. The island is also characterized by linguistic, cultural, and culinary traditions distinct from those of the mainland. The diet here is rich in beans of all sort -- including fava, lupine, and chickpeas -- and the wafer-thin traditional bread "carasu."
