Pecorino (fiore) Sardo

By: Cheese Secrets — Posted on September 10, 2010

The result of a laborious, complex cheesemaking process, Fiore Sardo is a straw-colored cheese with a brown rind. The Italian word fiore means flower. Thus this cheese is named the “Flower of Sardinia.” A bit more forceful than Pecorino Toscano, a famous sheep’s milk cheese from Tuscany, this Sardinian pecorino has a slightly salty flavor and a long finish.
