The Story

As reminisced to Forever Cheese:

Pecorino Camomilla is an old memory of when Paolo was little and used to spend time with his grandma Anita. As soon as the Pecorino was made, it was set out to dry and in the evening it was put in the cool pantry.  As the days went by and the cheese aged, to keep it as long a possible Paolo’s nonna put the cheese in large wooden crates covered with fresh cut chamomile.  In the afternoon they were stored closed up under the arches in the heat and then put in the pantry in the evening after opening the cases.
This was the perfect way to create creaminess in the cheese and to keep the softness  as well as maintaining the aroma of the chamomile that was so aptly paired with that of fresh milk. For almost three years Paolo has dedicated all of his passion to recreating ancient family traditions and the aroma and flavors of this cheese meld into a symphony of something unique and inimitable.

Usage Tips

A cheese with such a beautiful rind needs little other than a glass of wine, but we like to dress it up anyway. (Who abides by that "remove one accessory before leaving the house" rule, anyway?) Slice Camomilla up and drizzle her with some rich honey, or dab a bit of Pistacchiosa for color and contrast. On the savory side, serve this cheese as the dairy on a crudite board, Dry white wine makes for the perfect beverage pairing - we recommend regional Albana, Malvasia di Candia or Trebbiano.
