This cheese seems to always be looking out of the corner of its eye, inviting us to take a bite!  A dense cake of sheep’s milk cheese from Tuscany, a region famous for their devotion to pecorino of all shapes and ages, with the decadent addition of black truffles – talk about irresistible. 

The heady, fragrant aroma of truffles is a perfect companion for the nutty, earthy character of this cheese.  A fantastic choice for the cheese course or to serve alongside a very special bottle of red wine.  This cheese is also a sneaky way to scale up your kitchen endeavors; try it shaved over roasted root vegetables, a salad of radicchio and bitter greens, a mushroom risotto or a simple morning omelet.  There’s no wrong time for this one!
