Pecorino Romano is an origin-protected cheese that is made with whole sheep’s milk. It is made exclusively from farms located in the regions of Lazio, Tuscany, and Sardinia during the months of October through July. Aromatic, piquant, and sharp in flavor, it has a granular texture. Grating Pecorino Romano will elicit its robust fragrance. The richness of Pecorino Romano provides a nice counterpoint to the acidity of tomatoes in traditional Italian cooking.
