Pecorino is a hard cheese made from sheep's milk. It originates in Italy and is produced mainly on the island of Sardinia. There are different Pecorino varieties but most are sold aged and sharp and are used similar to Parmigiano-Reggiano (often called Parmesan). The United States have been an important buyer of Italian Pecorino for more than hundred years.

During the production of Pecorino more than 70 percent of the whey is removed from the milk. Whey of the Pecorino production is the base for the production of Ricotta.
