Fior Del Pastore Fresca (Pecorino Dolce) Cheese
£5.00 Per 200g
Here at Love Cheese we love a good sheep’s cheese and Pecorino is always a winner.
This sheeps cheese comes from the mountains of Tuscany, using long-trusted family methods and is the perfect balance of sweet and floral.
Flavour Profile: A perfect balance of sweet and floral. This combination gives it a delicate balance on the tongue with a fresh, creamy finish. Pecorino Dolce is a fresh, light cheese made from sheep’s milk. It never goes runny like a Brie but instead it maintains its structure in spite of being intensely creamy.
Drink Pairing: Something light and crisp to really hit the spot. We recommend our Kore, Grillo – a lovely, well balanced, delicate Italian white wine.
About the Maker: “Pecorino cheese is one of the oldest cheeses we know. Several ancient Roman scholars including Plinny the Elder and Virgil made references to cheese production techniques which were very similar to how we make Pecorino today. They say that an army marches on its stomach and the Roman legionnaires famously took Pecorino cheese with them on their travels as it had a high nutritional value and a long shelf life.”
How to Enjoy: This goes great with a fig chutney! Honestly, it’s almost like they were made for each other!
