Pepato is a raw semi-soft sheep cheese that is aged for 2-3 months at the Bellwether Farms in Sonoma County in California. This gourmet Pecorino cheese contains whole peppercorns distributed throughout the cheese, very much so as the Italian Pecorino Pepato.
Pepato was awarded a first place in the Flavored Cheese Open Category made from Sheep's Milk at the American Cheese Society Competition of 2009. Because of the looks, this cheese is a great addition to your cheese board, and will also do very nicely in a salad or a pasta sauce.
We sell this cheese as a 3 lbs wheel, half a wheel or in quarter wheel pieces of 12 ounces.
