Description

This aged Calabrian cheese is, along with Romano and Toscano, one of the most famous members of the Pecorino family. The name pecorino derives from the Italian pecora meaning “sheep”; not surprisingly, pecorino cheeses are made from sheep’s milk, and are characteristically hard, with a dry mouthfeel.

Pecorino Crotonese is one of several mature pecorino cheeses (called stagionato )with a protected name, that are made in Italy. The aging process imparts to Crotonese cheese a slightly earthy character; a pleasant, savour intensity; and a subtle acidity. Crotonese is compact and firm, with a more darkly pigmented, even yellowish, interior than other Pecorino. The aroma is complex and bold, ranging from barny to grassy.

Try serving Crotonese thinly shaved with slices of fresh pear, honey, and quince spread; or alongside your favourite Italian cold meats. Like other hard, aged Italian cheeses: Crotonese is popularly grated over top of pasta dishes.

Beverage Pairing: Crotonese is most at home alongside a bold Italian red wine, or an intensely bittersweet cup of espresso.

      This was out first order. The sausage is amazing. Just like “Nonno”. My mom said “è speciale”. It really is! I was not expecting it to be this good. Definitely will reorder and try other products. Also the customer service is wonderful. I promise you’ll be getting many more orders from family and friends! I would highly recommend!! Love it!!

      The best cheese to have with red wine :=) vacuum packaged, so you can keep them for a while.

      I love Johnny Prosciutto!!!! Amazing quality...great prices and EXCELLENT customer service. I ordered on Friday and it was delivered first thing Saturday!! We ate fresh meat for breakfast because it was just too inviting. The fact that they deliver is amazing especially since we have so many errands to run on the weekend as parents it's great to have such service to your door!!!
