Pecorino Cheese


Pecorino was named 2,000 years ago from the Italian word pecora, which means “sheep.” Although known as the firm, hard cheese available from most stores, Pecorino actually covers all Italian cheeses that are made from ewe’s milk.
Pecorino is available in Italy in three main classifications that are based on how long the individual cheeses have been aged. They are fresco, semi-stagionato and stagionato.
