Table Pecorino is my favorite style of cheese, and this is the most renowned of them. A little drizzle of truffle honey and your set.Fike
Dating back to around 500 BC, this cheese is produced throughout Tuscany from only five ancient breeds of sheep. A small, 3 pound wheel is aged for a minimum 4 months to produce a cheese that is flaky, nutty and straw yellow in color. Traditionally, a good Pecorino Stagionato is often the finish of a meal, served with pears and walnuts or drizzled with strong chestnut honey. It is also often used to finish pasta dishes and is preferred for the pasta dishes of Rome and Lazio. It pairs well with Chianti, Tempranillo, Pinot Grigio.
