A delicious young Pecorino cheese made with light, smoky saffron. A fine combination of flavours!
Produced by the Fratelli Petrucci, award winning artisan cheesemakers from the mountain areas between Lazio and Umbria. Here the sheep graze peacefully on the area’s voluptuous pastures and the Ewe’s milk obtained is rich, creamy and full of flavour.
The saffron is added to the milk and the pecorino is left to rest for 30 days until it acquires its semi-soft consistency and mild yet vivid and fresh taste.
Delicious on its own or as part of a refined cheese board, this saffron pecorino won’t go unnoticed! Also delicious melted over pasta or on thick toast.
Please note: this is an artisan pecorino made by hand and weights may vary slightly.
