Pecorino Foglie di Noce is a raw sheep’s milk cheese from Italy wrapped and aged in walnut leaves. It has a firm, crumbly paste that’s buttery and mild, but the addition of the walnut leaves infuses the cheese with an earthy flavor and herbaceous essence. Rich and complex, this traditional Italian cheese is best paired with rustic Italian meats like Brooklyn Cured Sliced Finocchiona or Creminelli Wild Boar Salami.
- Pecorino is the general term for Italian sheep’s milk cheeses, but the category encompasses a wide variety of styles and flavors.
- Pecorinos are traditionally fatty and buttery due to the high fat content of the sheep’s milk, which can lead to a richer flavor and more gamy notes.
- “Foglie di Noce” means “walnut leaves,” which refers to how the cheese is wrapped and aged.
