Floridia Pecorino Pepato is a natural cheese manufactured from fresh pasteurized cow’s milk. This cheese is a drum-shaped wheel and distributed throughout are whole black peppercorns, firm in texture with a hard body. Pepato is matured for a minimum of 4 months, where it develops its characteristic spicy taste. It is an exciting alternative to the more common Pecorino. The salty, tangy citrusy flavours complemented by the spiciness of the peppercorns make this cheese a great table cheese. Shave it on salads or fresh beans or pastas or grate into polenta or to top risotto.
