Doesnt look right?
Theres something strange about thisit just doesnt look right somehow. The colouring is too pale the texture not grainy enough. Somehow just looks fake and plastic-like. It doesnt seem appealing, so I havent opened it yetdespite buying it a few weeks ago. Will keep it for emergencies.
This is verging on being too salty. Good flavour though.
I use this in a carbonara. I gather it's the authentic choice rather than Parmesan... Who knows?? It's also delicious eaten on its own. Really.... cheesy.
Quite bland for a pecorino.
Decent cooking cheese, salty enough and melts just fine. it'll be a regular buy for me.
This isn't the best pecorina romano but it gets the job done. Flavour is fine, salty, and melts decently. Seems to get used up a lot more quickly than more expensive brands.
