The Healing Powers of Piacentinu
Tis the season for imported and limited edition cheese! During the holiday season, be on the lookout for seasonal favorites, including Piacentinu, a Sicilian sheep's milk cheese that has Madame Fromage swooning.
This week, I’ve been stuck on a Tanager-colored sheep cheese from Sicily that goes by the name of Piacentinu (pee-uh-CHEN-tin-oo). Its golden color drew me in from the cold to try a sample, and once I tasted the unexpected combination of saffron and peppercorn mixed into the milk, I was sold.
