While recently on holiday in Italy, I took several pictures of cheeses in stores and at markets including these of Pecorino's in one store of small hilltop fortress town called Pienza, in Tuscany.

Pecora is Italian for derived from sheep and Pecorino is the name of a family of hard Italian cheeses made from sheep milk. Pecorino Romano is most popular in US.

Thought people on this board would like them as several here making these types of cheeses and could give them some ideas.
