Food History

Pecorino is one of the most appreciated and well-known of the Italian cheeses. Its long history (its origins trace back over 2000 years) began in the countryside of Lazio, in the territory of the Roman Empire. In the first century AD, Romans had already perfected the techniques of cheese-making, and Lucius Columella, in his treatise De Re Rustica (On Agriculture), described in detail the processing of curd from lambs and goats.

Cheese then became a delicacy at imperial banquets. An ounce of pecorino was also part of a Roman legionnaires’ rations, due to its nutritional value and its ability to stay preserved over long periods of time. For these same reasons, many centuries later it was pecorino that accompanied Italian immigrants on their long voyage to America.
