Details

Delight adventurous cheese connoisseurs with this incredibly rich Centro Form Pecorino cheese with black summer truffles! Pecorino cheese has been a cherished Italian creation since antiquity, and is often eaten plain or embellished with additions such as peppercorns, arugula, or, in this case, "tartufo" - truffles. This fresh sheep's cheese has a strong but delightfully sharp flavor that is complemented by the earthy, garlicky, savory taste of the coveted summer truffles that are studded throughout. Its intense and lingering flavor is offset by its wonderfully soft, springy texture. This cheese lends itself well to both slicing and shaving!

This bold Pecorino cheese is perfect for serving alongside other strong flavors on a cheese plate or charcuterie board. Pair it with salty olives, intense fruit preserves, pickled pepperoncini, traditional Italian dried meats, or, for the true gourmand, the musty, gamey flavor of wild boar. When pairing this cheese with wine, opt for bold, dry, tannic Italian red wines like Chianti or Syrah. These brash, flavor-forward wines have enough acidity and character to hold their own against the strong flavor of the Pecorino and truffles! This cheese can also be artfully incorporated into a number of dishes on your menu, where other ingredients can help to tame its intense flavor even as it imparts its savory richness throughout your culinary creations. Try including it in an indulgent macaroni and cheese topped with shaved truffles, or fold it into a rich, creamy risotto. Shaving it over pasta or a salad of bitter greens is another great way to impart this Pecorino's distinct flavor into your dishes without overpowering the other ingredients. No matter how you choose to serve this lavish cheese, its delicious combination of two Italian favorites - fresh Pecorino cheese and prized summer truffles - is the perfect way to present your patrons with rich, authentic flavor!

For countless generations, Italian cheesemakers have been passing down the exacting, seemingly alchemical art of turning ordinary milk into remarkable, magnificent cheeses. Centro Form's mission is to preserve and pass along this art form, while producing traditional Italian cheeses for customers all over the world. Expert artisans with skillful hands trained by decades of experience oversee every step of the cheesemaking process, which is informed by both tradition and innovation. Though these concepts are seemingly contradictory, Centro Form aims to leverage them in order to produce ancient cheeses that are fit for the modern world. Their line of Italian classics has something to delight every palate!
