Pecorino stands for “ovine” or “of sheep” in Italian, and it is the name of all Italian cheeses made from sheep’s milk. It covers a wide variety of cheese produced in Italy, but specifically, it refers to four main varieties of Pecorino. Of these four, Pecorino Romano from Sardinia, Lazio and Tuscany is the most widely known outside of Italy. A hard, salty cheese, Pecorino Romano is often used for grating over dishes, with other equally great but less common Pecorino being Pecorino Sardo from Sardinia, Pecorino Siciliano from Sicily and Pecorino Toscano from Tuscany.
