A creamy cheese from the Dauphine near Lyon, St Marcellin is made from cow’s milk and is a soft cheese usually sold in terracotta pots. The best ones are orange with a lemony taste and nutty aroma and we’ve tracked these down for you. They say St Marcellin should be chewed for a long time […]
Pecorino With Chilli
Spicy red chilli peppers join the mild Pecorino Dolce aroma – there is no doubt this combination works. Very eye catching due to the red-orange chilli flakes in the pale cheese (and a good choice for your Halloween cheese board).
The third and most mature of our plain Pecorinos from Tuscany. ‘Nero’ refers to its black rind and indicates a maturity stage of 4-6months. Only slightly more yellowy than the younger Pecorino Rosso and already quite crumbly, the distinctly herby taste of wild thyme and sage has intensified.
This Pecorino from our Tuscan range only matures for 3-5 weeks and is still very soft (for a firm cheese) and has a creamy finish. Wonderfully fresh and gently flavoured, this cheese won’t last long on the cheeseboard.
Pecorino means three things: 1)Italian 2)firm cheese 3)made from ewes milk. This particular one is from Tuscany and has matured for 2-3 months, resulting in a yellowy-white cheese with a firm and smooth texture. ‘Rosso’ refers to its red rind, which is naturally coloured with tomato pulp.
The perfect after dinner cheese and yet another flavoured Pecorino Dolce (see Pecorino Dolce/Pecorino Chilli). Fine truffles mixed in with the curd are giving this beautifully mild young cheese a real touch of luxury.
