Ancient type of cheese

According to the European Union law, Pecorino Romano receives a Protected Designation of Origin certification meaning it cannot be made elsewhere or in any other way in order to carry the name.

As per the legislation on production, Pecorino Romano is allowed only in the islands of Sardinia, Lazio and in the Tuscan province of Grosseto. Varieties only differ from each other depending on how much they have aged.

The history of Pecorino Romano dates back to the Roman times when it was part of the staple diet of soldiers at war.
