Fennel and Orange Salad with Pecorino Red Chilli

< back to recipes

Floridia Pecorino Red Chilli is a natural cheese manufactured from fresh pasteurized cow’s milk. This cheese is a drum-shaped wheel, firm in texture with a hard body and distributed through the cheese are red pepperoncino flakes. Pecorino Red Chilli Cheese is matured for a minimum of 4 months, where it develops a moderate spiciness that tickles the back of your throat without setting your mouth on fire. The pepperoncino is an Italian red chilli pepper about as hot as a jalapeno. Floridia Pecorino Red Chilli Cheese is yellow in appearance and is ideal for slicing, grating and on cheese boards.
