Pecorino Romano is an Italian cheese made from sheep's milk, particularly from the Sardinian breed of sheep. Pecorino Romano cheese is recognized with a Protected Designation of Origin, ensuring that it is produced according to traditional methods in specific regions like Lazio and Sardinia of Italy.
It is a hard and crumbly cheese with a granular texture, which makes it perfect for grating. It has a strong, sharp, and salty flavour with a slightly nutty undertone. Pecorino Romano is aged for a minimum of five months, although some versions can be aged for a year or more, resulting in a more intense flavour.
