Sheep Cheese


Manchego - Pound Cut (1 pound)

Manchego - Pound Cut (1 pound) Lowest new price: $10.99
List price: $17.98
Brand: igourmet

Produced in La Mancha in Central Spain, true Manchego is made from 100% sheep's milk. Cheeses from Spain are commonly made from sheep's milk because most of the territory is rocky and dry; unfriendly to cows but suitable for raising goats and sheep. The abundance of wild herbs on Central Spain's grazing lands gives Manchego a special taste and aroma. Its flavor is zesty and exuberant, while its texture is firm, but not dry. Manchego can be recognized by the zigzag pattern etched into its rind. This is created by the rippled surface of the press used in the production of the cheese. Underneath the inedible rind, the interior is ivory-colored with few small holes. Taste Manchego for the first time and you will be surprised at how long the wonderful flavor lingers on your palate. It is an experience you will be drawn back to again and again.

Dating back to ancient Roman times, Pecorino Romano is one of the world's oldest recorded cheeses.

All Pecorino Romano is made in either Lazio, Tuscany, or Sardinia during the months between November and June. These three regions have very similar pastures and breeds of sheep, ensuring consistent flavor and quality. Pecorino Romano is a name protected (DOC) cheese; its production overseen by the Consorzio per la Tulela del Formaggio Pecorino Romano. There are numerous Pecorinos made throughout Italy, but only one Pecorino Romano. Perhaps the most famous brand for Pecorino Romano in the U.S. is Locatelli.

igourmet Paski Sir (Pag Island Cheese) (7.5 ounce) Lowest new price: $12.89
List price: $12.99
Brand: igourmet

Produced exclusively from the milk of the autochthonous sheep on the Island of Pag, Paški Sir is the most famous ewes' milk cheese in all of Croatia. This is a one-year-aged pasteurized cheese made from the sheep raised on the island of Pag, Croatia. There are a total of 40,000 sheep and 8,000 humans on the island of Pag. The sheep are a special breed, smaller than average with limited milk production. The island is windy with little vegetation, what little grass it has is in the hills, and due to the crosswinds much of the salt water blows over it. The sheep produce very little milk, maximum just a liter per day. On top of that their diet is influenced by the salty grass they eat. In total it takes 6 sheep or more to produce one wheel of cheese. Our producer is Paška Sirana. They have 200 members who together have 300 sheep. The cheesemaker, Nenad, has been making cheese for 15 years. The cheese is rich and flavorful - it is not overly dry and there is a beautiful crystallinity in the texture with a gentle sweetness. Traditionally this aged cheese is served chunked and crumbled with olive oil.

Pecorino Romano by Zerto - Pound Cut (1 pound)

Pecorino Romano by Zerto - Pound Cut (1 pound) Lowest new price: $6.99
List price: $19.49
Brand: igourmet

Pecorino Romano is Italy's oldest cheese, dating back to ancient Roman times. This hard, sheep's milk cheese is typically aged for one year and used as a grating cheese. This Pecorino Romano, like most Pecorino Romano made today, is made in Sardinia where land and sheep are abundant.

Romano is an integral part of many southern Italian dishes, especially those that include pasta, tomatoes, potatoes, and other vegetables. A bit drier and saltier than northern Italian "Grana" cheeses (Parmigiano Reggiano and Grana Padano), this cheese is excellent grated over pasta dishes, but is not recommended as an eating cheese. For an eating Romano, please try our Pecorino Romano Genuino, which is still made in Lazio, the region surrounding Rome.

  • Made from pasteurized sheep's milk.
  • Whole form is 45 lbs.
  • We cut and wrap this item by hand.

Features:

  • Grating cheese with a bite
  • Excellent over pasta, rice or steamed vegetables
  • Original wheel is over 60 pounds!
  • Made from pure sheep's milk

igourmet Myzithra - Pound Cut (15.5 ounce) Lowest new price: $9.99
List price: $10.99
Brand: igourmet

Because of Greece's less-than-fertile terrain, most of its cheeses are made from sheep's milk. Feta is, of course, the best-known Greek cheese, but fresh sheep's milk cheeses are common, as well. One of the most common of these ricotta-style cheeses is Myzithra. It has a much more interesting flavor and texture than most of the ricotta available in this country. The flavor is rather nutty, and the texture is cottony and drier than ricotta. This cheese works wonderfully in cooking, especially blended into pasta dishes. Our version of Myzithra is actually the pressed and dried version. It is similar to an Italian ricotta salata and is a popular grating cheese in Greece. The cheese is quite crumbly and salty, so a little bit can add a lot of flavor to your dishes.

  • Made from pasteurized sheep's milk.

Features:

  • Ships expedited in a reusable insulated cooler to ensure freshness

This pure sheep's milk cheese made in four pound wheels comes to us from Calabria, in southern Italy. Calabrese has that famous pecorino flavor and is both sweet and salty. Like most ewe's milk varieties, its surface is a bit oily due to the natural oils in the milk. Formed in woven molds, the rind takes on a ribbed pattern that makes a nice presentation. Excellent as a snacking cheese.

  • Serve it grated or sliced...this is a perfect percorino...salty and sweet
  • Pairs well with bold red wines like Brunello
