Pecorino Perfetto

1/11 LB
A pasteurized sheep cheese from Sardinia with plump, buttery texture and rich, mild flavor, reminescent of toasted hazelnuts and vanilla. It's the Perfect Pecorino.

As its name suggests, we think this is the Perfect Pecorino. Most Americans know Pecorino as a hard, salty, grating cheese but Italians make pecorinos (sheep milk cheeses) in every size, age and flavor profile imaginable. This pasteurized pecorino from Sardinia is the perfect eating cheese. Its squishy, plump texture reminds us of Havarti but the fattiness of sheep milk lends a buttery flavor without any tang. While you can grate and melt it, one bite might cause you to eat the whole piece. Because this cheese has what's called a "natural rind" (meaning it's not waxed or treated with preservatives) grey and white mold may develop. This is totally normal and not a sign of spoilage. The mold cna be easily patted or rubbed down. The rich, mild flavor is a perfect complement to grainy fig jam, spicy pickles or nuggets of dry salami. A light red wine doesn't hurt either!
