Italian culture places a strong emphasis on family, so all month we’ll be looking at the various families of Italian cheese. Every week we will highlight a different category, with special sale prices on the cheeses in that family.

Pecorino: The first thing to know about Pecorino is that it’s made from sheep’s milk. In fact, pecorino just means “little sheep.” The second thing to know is that it’s just about the greatest grater you could imagine. Under the pecorino umbrella are a range of styles that are well worth trying. So the question is: how do you prefer your cheese? For something dry, salty, and crumbly, go for Pecorino Romano. If you’re partial to a cheese that’s semi-firm, nutty, and sweet you’ll want a Pecorino Calabrese. The list goes on, and it’s delicious through and through.

Blue: Gorgonzola is indisputably Italy’s most well-known blue cheese, and it’s been made since the 11th century in the town that gives the cheese its name. While there’s more than one style of Gorgonzola (there’s Gorgonzola Dulce and the smaller Gorgonzola Picante), there’s also more to Italian blue cheese than just Gorgonzola. Blu di Langa is unctuous and mooshroomy, Blu di Bufala is buttery and rich, Blu di Moncenisio is vegetal and moist.
