Pecorino di Rocca from Tuscany – SFGate

Photo: SF Gate

Many American consumers use the term “pecorino” as shorthand for the dry, sharp, salty grating cheese that competes with Parmigiano-Reggiano as a pasta topping.

But Italy’s pecorinos are far more varied than that. They’re made at creameries from the north to the south and matured anywhere from a few weeks to years. They can be mild and milky, or biting and peppery, as supple as mozzarella or as hard as rocks. The only unifying feature is the use of sheep’s milk.

Salutation Recipes

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
