Eating & Drinking

  • Eating & Drinking in Pienza

    Pienza is famous for its homemade cheeses, especially pecorino and ricotta. For cheese-lovers, Pecorino is the taste of Tuscany and is certainly the probably the most admired of local cheeses. Pecorino is known for its particular salty taste and a dry, granular texture, which comes from the lengthy ageing process, during which the cheese is dry-salted numerous times. At best, Pecorino has a sharp, smoky flavour that works so well with wine, bread, pasta sauces, or just as a simple cheese platter. Fans recommend dipping it in local honey.
