I’m a Sicilian hard-cheese with black peppercorn, from which the slightly spicy flavour derives. Shaped following the Sicilian traditional processing in “canestri di giunco”, reed baskets, it is perfect grated to flavour first courses or broke into flakes to add an aromatic note to salads and vegetables. I’m aged from 4 to 10 months.

The Sicilian Pepato is a variety of Pecorino that has black peppercorns added to the paste of the cheese to enhance the flavour. Available as fresh or an aged cheese, Pecorino Pepato has a flavor that is mildly salty and peppery that becomes spicier with age. As it ages, this cheese becomes a good cheese for grating to be used for baked potatoes, grilled vegetables such as corn on the cob, or for pasta dishes.
