Serenaded by poets, cherished by all who try it, Pecorino Romano is a staple in Italian cuisine. On the natural plains of Lazio, sheep bred specifically for Pecorino are fed fresh forage, producing full and aromatic milk that almost exclusively makes up the ingredients of this cheese.
Originating in the capital of Italy, Pecorino Romano delivers pungent tones of soft spices and seared butter. Bursting with character, this cheese is hard and crumbly in texture and presents ever-stronger flavors as the seasons pass.

Pecorino Romano is most often used on pasta dishes, like the better-known Parmigiano Reggiano.
Its distinctive aromatic and pleasantly sharp, very salty flavor led to it being preferred for some Italian pasta dishes with highly flavored sauces, especially those of Roman origin, such as bucatini al' amatriciana, spaghetti alla carbonara, and spaghetti cacio e pepe (of which it is a main ingredient).
