Earlier this week, our cheesemaker friend Vincenzo from County Cork sent a wedge of young pecorino our way. The cheese is made from milk produced by his own flock of sheep, and I’ve been enjoying the much-appreciated gift in peace (trying to anyway) when the dogs weren’t looking. Unlike aged pecorino cheeses, the flavor is mildly pleasant, but it turns a shade wicked with a dab of sweet chile pepper jam.
Thank you Vincenzo! Of course I googled Pecorino Vincenzo and found Toons Bridge Dairy in County Cork. Absolutely love the idea of Italian cheese taking root on the Emerald Isle.
