Pecorino Foglie di Noce

If you see a grey round of Foglie di Noce in a shop, grab it. The walnut leaves wrapped around this aged sheep milk cheese from Emilia-Romagna ripen only twice a year, making this cheese a seasonal offering. A cheese that is aged with the walnut leaves in airy caves, Foglie di Noce has a distinct earthy aroma and flavor with an underlying sharp touch.
