Product Highlights

Although from Yorkshire, the cheesemaker is initially from Italy meaning this cheese is a beautiful concoction of 2 fantastic cheese heritages. 

Like all classic Italian young cheeses, it is smooth, yoghurty and sweet!

Fun fact: Pecore in Italian means sheep; hence their sheep’s milk cheeses are often called ‘pecorino’!




Ewe's Milk

Flavour Profile: Yorkshire Pecorino produce a variety of cheeses, and this is their youngest cheese of the bunch! Aged only for 30 days, you can expect smooth, yogurt-like flavours with a delightful sweetness on the palette

Drink Pairing: This is a highly versatile cheese that would lend itself to most wines. We love it with a crisp light white or rose wine, but the earthy rind would also compliment a red, if that’s your poison. 

About the Maker: “Brought in up Sardinia, Mario Olianas comes from a strong family of Italian gastronomes.

Moving to Leeds in 2001, he quickly set about realising his passion for food – by setting up Italian supper clubs and baking fine foods. Upon hearing about his family’s diversification into cheese-making, however, Mario decided he wanted to create a better Italian cheese than his brothers’.  Getting hold of a small vat, he started making cheese in a specially converted room within his house, following an adapted Pecorino recipe. He uses fresh sheep’s milk which he collects daily from just outside Harrogate, and cultures imported from Italy.”

How to Enjoy: With some crackers, a glass of wine and good company.
