Central Moliterno Sheep's Milk Cheese with Pepper is manufactured from 100% pasteurized sheep's milk and is flavored with black pepper in grain and salt. This mixture adds peppery tones to the traditional deep, earthy flavor of moliterno. After aging for 3 months in traditional straw baskets, Moliterno Pepato Cheese is bold and savory. This cut was produced in the Italian island of Sardinia.
Moliterno Cheese belongs to the pasta filata (spun-paste) cheese family, which implies that its curd is stretched and pulled throughout the manufacturing process. When Moliterno Cheese is prepared with sheep’s milk, it comes to be referred to as pecorino moliterno. Pecorino cheese is one of the most ancient cheeses, dating back to the Roman Empire. Made with Sheep’s rich milk, pecorino is said to have graced the tables of Roman emperors. Southern Italian artisans have retained an original method of preparation, wherehas the cheese wheels are salted numerous times upon drying to deliver that sharp taste. In fact, Pecorino has a dry, gritty feel and is frequently used as an alternative to Parmesan cheese. You can discover the world's best cheese in our expertly curated collection at Yummy Bazaar.
Central’s history of cheese making dates back to the late 19th century when the Vilecco family started producing high-quality sheep’s and goat’s cheeses. Crafting cheese on the island of Sardinia, Italy, for four generations now, Central’s highly qualified staff ensures consistently high quality in both production and raw materials.
