Primo Sale Cheese

Primo Sale means "first salt", which refers to its early stages of maturation. Primo Sale is a fresh cheese, that can be ready to be brought to the table the day after its production. It has a delicate but inviting flavour and a warm scent of fresh milk.

If you are ever curious about the taste of young Pecorino, try Primo Sale. While this cheese is common in Southern Italy, specifically in Sicily area, it is rather rare to find in North America. Thanks to our maker Luigi's extensive travel and working experience all over Italy, we have adopted the traditional Primo Sale recipe for our product. Because of its age, Primo Sale appears pale with a light, soft and creamy texture. Its flavour can really stand out when drizzled with some olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper.

Storing and Serving Primo Sale

It is recommended to keep cheese on a higher shelf of the refrigerator, far from food with strong odors, in order to avoid absorption of unwanted tastes and smells. In fact, the best option is to store them in a food container with lid to preserve cheese freshness and to protect from moisture, odors and possible moulding in the fridge. Freezing is not recommended.
