Sicilian Sheep Pecorino with Peppercorns

$30.24 - 600gr

Pecorino cheese with black peppercorns is a cheese of long Sicilian tradition. While some say that the original recipe included not just the black peppercorns in the cheeses’ inner core, but the skin was also lined with chopped black pepper – a different processing that allows to flavor the cheese, protecting it at the same time, avoiding the “discomfort” of eating pepper grains.
