Description
 
A diet staple from Roman times, this cheese is made using only traditional methods in the unique areas of origin. The wheels are dry-salted by hand numerous times. Its lengthy aging time from eight to 12 months results in a dry and granular texture and a strong taste. When young, the cheese has a soft, rubbery texture with sweet and aromatic flavor. The flavor becomes sharper and smokier when aged for eight months or longer. Pecorino Romano is one of most widely used, sharper alternatives to Parmigiano. Because of the hard texture and sharp and salty flavor, Pecorino Romano is an excellent grating cheese over pasta dishes, breads and baking casseroles.

5 of 5 Love this cheese! August 9, 2021
Reviewer: Theresa McClain from Tehachapi, CA United States  
It is impossible to find pecorino close to home, but I was leery of getting it through the mail in this hot weather.  It arrived well packed and in perfect shape, so I won't hesitate to order it again.
