Pecorino Sheep Cheese with Saffron and Black Pepper

A hard sheep's milk cheese, intense yellow in colour due to the presence of saffron. The flavor is accentuated by black pepper grains in cheese.

Its most obvious characteristic is the abundant addition of wild saffron to the curd, giving it a unique colour and flavour.  The sheep used for its production feed mainly on a leguminous plant, which confers its own distinctive flavour to the milk.
