A southern Italian cheese, from Ragusa, Pecorino Pepato has a long and fabled history. "Pepato" means with peppercorns, and whole black peppercorns are distributed throughout the bright white paste, giving it a pronounced spiciness. Rindless and with exterior indentations hearkening back to when this cheese was pressed into basket moulds, Pepato's texture is semi-firm and crumbly without being too dry, and it is best eaten when young. Made entirely from sheep's milk and aged 9 months, with its characteristic spicy taste, Pepato, makes one of the tastiest table cheeses and is perfect for grating.
