Canestrato al Tartufo Cheese

From Lazio, the region of Rome, comes a typical Italian pecorino: a firm aged sheep cheese speckled with black truffle. Buttery and slightly sharp, the truffle plays with the cheese's primary flavor, complementing but not overwhelming it. 

Italy is famous for high quality cheese and truffles, two things that go wonderfully together. Need proof? Try Canestrato al Tartufo: a firm aged sheep’s milk cheese flavored with black truffle bits. This cheese is perfect for being mentally transported to Italy, or recreating cheesy truffle dishes at home. The richness of 100% sheep’s milk creates a buttery full-flavored cheese, and the 6 month aging period helps sharpen and intensify the flavors. The earthy exotic aroma of the truffles mingles perfectly with the cheese without overwhelming it. Though truffle cheese is rarely budget-friendly, this cheese is more affordable: the cheesemaker uses traditional recipes but has adopted some technological advances that make the production more economical. This makes it an excellent cooking cheese: shave it over pasta, salad, soup, potatoes and more. This cheese effortlessly takes any dish or cheese board to the next level. Try it with Italian reds, especially those from around Rome, where this cheese is made.
