Made from sheep's milk, Pecorino Romano is a hard, sharp cheese that is often grated. However, this pecorino is so delicious that it can be enjoyed simply by slicing and eating. Makes a great companion to red wine, often before dinner as a snack or appetizer.

I have ordered this in the past, and getting ready to order it again. This arrived in pristine condition in one big chunk, which is exactly what I wanted. I had planned to cut it up myself into portions and seal each up separately, and it worked fine. Over 6 months later, I am on my last piece, and it is as good as the first. This stores nicely right in the fridge if you seal it, is not slimy or moldy, perfect-o! A great deal when it costs twice as much for a meager 8 ounce piece from the market, which lasts us all of one meal. I would highly recommend this if you have or have access to a home sealer. I am sure there are other ways to store this amount, but this works for us, as I can pull out 8 ounces or a pound at a time, depending on my meal. Get this, you will not be disappointed! And shipping was fast and packaged well besides! This market is a great find, you should try it if you like to buy in bulk, well worth it. One hint, don't order stuff in the heat of the summer, they won't ship if it is too hot, and I don't blame them, no one wants to receive spoiled meat and cheese. But do try!!!
