Pecorino is a term used to define Italian cheeses made from 100% sheep’s milk. Out of the four Pecorino cheeses that have received Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) status under European Union law, Pecorino Romano is one of the most ancient types of cheese as well as the most famous outside of Italy.
As per legislation, production of Pecorino Romano cheese is allowed only on the islands of Sardinia, Lazio and in the Tuscan Province of Grosseto. As the name suggests, the history of Pecorino Romano cheese dates back to the Roman times when it was a part of the staple diet of soldiers at war.
Suggestion: Pecorino Romano cheese makes an excellent grating cheese over pasta dishes, breads and baking casseroles. Although, the use of the cheese is limited because of its extreme saltiness. Pair it with a glass of big, bold Italian red wine or a light beer.
