This young sheep's milk cheese from Italy is perfect to savor with fresh pears and a light, crisp white wine. Blue Daisy is aged for only 30 days, which preserves all the freshness of the cheese. Unlike the aged versions of Italian pecorinos, known best here in the United States as Pecorino Romano, this is not a sharp, salty cheese. Instead the mild, sweet flavor of the sheep's milk is perfectly accented with a light, springy texture. We love this cheese served on its own before the meal with fresh fruit, or just as a simple lunch with a mache salad and some bread. For fans of Pecorino Toscano or Crema di Roma, Blue Daisy Pecorino Fresco is sure to be a hit!
Blue Daisy is the brand of Pecorino Toscano created by the dairy Fratelli Putzulu, which is located in the heart of the green and pristine agro Siena, on a hill overlooking the Val d'Orcia and Pienza. Over the past 25 years, Fratelli Putzulu has been creating the classic cheeses of local tradition with modern machining requirements to produces consistent, high quality cheeses.
Made from pasteurized sheep's milk.
